Bulldozer used in attempted Mora bank break-in

By David Giuliani

It was an unusual way to try to break into a bank.

Around 2 a.m. Friday, authorities responded to an incident in which someone operating a bulldozer tried to break the walls of the Mora branch of the Bank of Las Vegas. The bulldozer was stolen from a track-and-field construction project on school grounds, said Tim Marquez, Mora County’s undersheriff.

He said state police responded after a bulldozer triggered the bank’s alarms. He said it appeared as if the person tried to break into the “pretty solid” wall to get to the automatic teller machine.
