Laquan J. Wright, 28, a city resident, broke into the 16th Avenue salon overnight last week and removed the machine, Newark Public Safety Director Anthony F. Ambrose said.

Police were called to the scene at 6:50 a.m., last Saturday, on reports that the ATM machine was missing from Deedee African Hair Braiding salon, police said.
