A sensor in an ATM alerted officials that someone was attempting to break in. Security cameras captured Tarver using a crowbar on the machine.

When police arrived, Tarver started running away, but was caught when he ran back into the foyer containing the ATM.

He was sentenced Wednesday for attempted theft of property from an automated teller machine. He was also sentenced to 20 years for evading arrest with a previous conviction.
