Man admits taking close to $10k from ATM

A man who admitted taking close to $10,000 from an ATM could spend one year in prison, if he fails to repay the stolen money and pay $2,000 in fines.

Travis Seymour, 30, was caught on security footage removing the money from the Scotiabank ATM at SuperClubs Breezes, the court heard.

According to the prosecution, Seymour used access codes to open the machine. He removed $4,040 on July 28 and $5,400 on July 30.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of stealing at his arraignment before Magistrate Samuel McKinney.

According to his attorney, Glenda Roker, Seymour’s crime was a “testament of the times”.

Roker said that an unnamed person provided Seymour with the password to the ATMs and he “attended SuperClubs to see if the codes were valid”.

She asked the court not to impose an outright prison sentence and afford Seymour the chance to make restitution.

Seymour has a pending matter of a similar nature, Inspector Bridgette Strapp, the prosecutor, said.

McKinney required Seymour to repay the stolen $5,400 and a $1,000 fine to be released from custody.

He has until October 1 to refund the stolen $4,040 and pay his $1,000 fine.

Otherwise, he would spend one year in prison.

In January, Seymour was accused of teaming up with CIBC employee Samantha Gilbert to steal $233,000 from satellite ATMs that belonged to the bank.
