Andrew C. Hintt | Woodstock police

A man has been charged with stealing an ATM from a bowling alley last month in northwest suburban Woodstock.

Officers were called about a burglary at 11:30 p.m. July 20 at Kingston Lanes at 1330 S. Eastwood Dr., according to a statement from Woodstock police. They arrived to discover an ATM had been removed from inside the business.

On Aug. 17, investigators identified 26-year-old Andrew C. Hintt as a suspect in the burglary, police said. They obtained a warrant to search his apartment in the 600 block of McHenry Avenue, where they found the heavily damaged ATM.

They also found a handgun reported stolen from Florida, 6.84 pounds of marijuana and other drugs, according to police. Hintt was not home at the time but was located at a Super 8 Motel in McHenry with the help of the McHenry County sheriff’s office and U.S. Marshals.

He was arrested and charged with burglary, criminal damage to property, two counts of possession of weapons by a felon, possession of a stolen firearm, failure to register as a violent offender against youth, possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said.

He is being held at the McHenry County Jail on a $50,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court again Aug. 23.
