The ATM stolen from St. Lawrence University's Brewer Bookstore has been recovered by police and a 21 year old Canton man now faces charges.
Canton village police have charged Brandon Crandall, 21, with two felony counts of grand larceny and a single felony count of criminal mischief for his alleged participation in the theft.
Police are also looking for an accomplice who helped Crandall remove the machine from the bookstore's entryway last Friday night.
Police recovered the ATM from a field behind Crandall's Sykes Road home.
They also found $17,500 in cash. Police believe the accomplice may have another $17,000.
Police say Crandall and the other suspect may also have attempted to steal another ATM near Lake Placid earlier this month.
Crandall was arraigned in Pierrepont town court and released to the supervision of probation.
