FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (WUSA) -- Fredericksburg police say surveillance video shows a person put an explosive device on the base of an ATM that caused an explosion at 4 a.m. on Wednesday.
An explosion was heard near the Virginia Credit Union in the 2100 block of Gordon Shelton Boulevard at approximately 4 a.m. A resident nearby and the credit union reported it to police at approximately 9 a.m.
Police began investigating the explosive and a possible second device at the bank after a dog indicated there may be a bomb on Wednesday afternoon.
When police arrived, they found an ATM with scorch marks and other damage. They say the ATM was still working and that the suspect may have been trying to get money from it by blowing up the ATM.
The bank and some nearby apartments were evacuated and closed Wednesday afternoon after a bomb detection dog indicated there may be another device.
At 2:15 p.m., the VSP Bomb Unit declared the area bomb free but the bank drive-through remains closed.
