The 41-year-old Grand Island man accused of using a Bobcat to rip an ATM on South Locust last Friday and leading police a slow-speed chase throughout the city made his 1st appearance Monday in Hall County Court.


Bryce Malesker was charged with theft by unlawful taking, theft of property, three counts of criminal mischief and using a motor vehicle to avoid arrest.


Malesker is accused of using a Bobcat to tear a Five Points Bank ATM from a building on South Locust Street.


He's also accused of causing property damage to personal property and area businesses such as Five Points Bank, Galaxy Laundry and Grand Island Public Schools.


Malesker attempted to ask for a low bond, but Judge Art Wetzel denied his request, citing his need to protect the public. Bond was set at $250,000 and his preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 17th.
