The Denton Police Department is now partnering with the FBI to investigate a robbery of a Wells Fargo ATM on Monday.

There are now multiple of people of interest identified, though police spokesman Allison Vetere said she could not say how many suspects there are. Their descriptions are not being released, she said.

An ATM technician was performing maintenance on the machine Monday when two suspects pushed him aside and made off with four cassettes of $20 bills, totaling $114,230. Police officials said it was not clear why the total was not divisible by 20.

Police have also recovered an undisclosed portion of the money, Vetere said. FBI officials did not have additional information Friday afternoon.
