Middle Tennessee authorities recently put out a news release telling residents to be extra careful around ATM machines.

There were multiple cases of “bank jugging” in recent weeks, according to authorities.

Bank juggling occurs when suspects watch ATMs and banks and then follow people who withdraw cash to other places and then try to rob them.

Here are some tips on how to stay safe and avoid becoming a target of “bank jugging”….

Be aware of your surroundings and look for any suspicious activity.

If you think you’re being followed, call 9-1-1, or find a nearby law enforcement agency or officer.

When your vehicle is parked, do not leave valuables inside.

Make sure the vehicle is locked and the windows are rolled-up.
