    A Model Partnership Between Law Enforcement and ecoATM Brings Thieves To Justice

    From our headquarters in San Diego, ecoATM staff view an image in real time of a suspicious individual at one of our kiosks in Everett, Washington. The person in question attempts to cash in on a cell phone; immediately, ecoATM staff contact the Everett Police Department, attaching the image of the individual. The suspect is later arrested for trafficking in stolen goods.

    "It's great getting the State DL/ID required by seller at time of transaction along with the actual live photo of the subject at the kiosk; this allows us to prove who is conducting the transaction. Love that the fingerprint is required in case identity of the subject at the kiosk is in question; we have a viable print to compare to a subject if needed."

    State DL/ID required by seller at time of transaction

    “The victim placed his phone on a gaming machine at a casino so he could help an employee lift something. surveillance department had the suspect on camera taking the phone but could not ID him because he did not use a players club card. the victim was notified his phone was activated at 2218 hours at the Walmart in Miami, OK. I was amazed at how smooth the recovery of the phone went!!”
