Four Texas men were arrested yesterday, charged with robbing ATM machines, one in the Walmart Neighborhood Market in Conway and another at a Shell Superstop in Benton. The scheme also targeted ATMs in Oklahoma.
The men were indicted earlier this month on federal charges of transporting stolen money and conspiring to transport stolen money.

The defendants, all of Dallas: Antonio Denard Few, 34; Christopher Landelle Burns, 31; James Darron Miller, Jr., 32; and Steven Jadon Williams, 39.
From a press release from the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas:
The indictment alleges that from December 2018 through January 2019, the defendants rented vehicles to drive from Dallas to Oklahoma and Arkansas in order to break into Walmart Neighborhood Market stores to steal or break into ATMs. The defendants allegedly utilized tools and bought gloves and clothing to conceal their identity while they conducted the break-ins, and they communicated by cell phone to orchestrate the robberies.
During yesterday’s arrests, authorities seized 15 firearms and around $15,000 in cash, as well as crowbars, bolt cutters, and heavy gauge cables with hooks.
If convicted, the defendants could face up to ten years imprisonment and up to a $250,000 fine.
