Maybe Der Wienerschnitzel Isn't the Best Place for My Credit Union to Put Their ATMs

Back in March of 2009 the ATM belonging to my credit union was stolen from a Der Wienerschnitzel fast food joint near my house.  It's happened again to one of my credit union's machines, this time in Anaheim:
Police are asking for the public's help in identifying two men suspected of taking an ATM from a Wienerschnitzel restaurant.

The burglary happened about 2:15 a.m. on Nov. 22 when two men pried open the drive-thru window of the restaurant on the 2800 block of West La Palma Avenue, Anaheim police Sgt. Bob Dunn said.

The men then covered the surveillance cameras with napkins from the restaurant and used a pallet jack to take the automated teller machine from Schools First Federal Credit Union, which contained thousands of dollars, Dunn said.

"The pallet jack was left at the scene and (detectives) believe it was used to transport the ATM machine from inside the restaurant to a possible waiting vehicle," Dunn said.
I think they may need to rethink their ATM marketing strategy.
