Out among the trees
An ATM machine mysteriously left in the woods of Maine had locals scratching their heads and authorities warning people not to attempt a cash withdrawal. A woman taking her morning walk on Nov. 20 discovered the blue ATM machine upright and intact in the woods near Deer Isle, Maine. Detective Steve McFarland checked on the machine, noted it had not been tampered with, and filed a report. The next day, the owner of the machine confessed to the sheriff’s office that she left the machine there to prank her neighbors.
