GRAND FORKS -- Police said two men accused of stealing an ATM Tuesday from a Hilton Garden Inn in Grand Forks turned off the power in the hotel before loading the machine into a stolen truck.

Jeffrey Allen Conn, 27, and Daniel Joseph Ganyo, 51, both of Grand Forks, were arrested by University of North Dakota and Grand Forks police and charged Tuesday on multiple counts. Their first appearance in Grand Forks District Court was Wednesday.

At 3 a.m. Tuesday, one of the men--police are still determining who--entered the hotel and shut off the building's power from the utility room, according to court documents. The man then broke the decorative wooden case around the ATM before removing the machine, according to court documents. The man exited the hotel on the west side with the ATM, where it was loaded into the back of a Cullen Insulation Truck with a dolly, according to court documents. The truck was later reported stolen from the Cullen Insulation business in Grand Forks.

Conn also appeared in court Wednesday on drug charges stemming from an incident three days before the alleged ATM theft.  At 6:46 a.m. Saturday, Grand Forks police responded to a report of a shirtless man walking on top of washers and dryers while "wildly gesticulating with his arms" at Busy Bubbles laundromat.Police said they found Conn in the woman's bathroom "pale and sweating profusely" with constricted pupils sensitive to light. Conn was taken to Altru Hospital for medical treatment, where he admitted he had ingested methamphetamine and heroin, according to court documents.
