ATM machines not safe

Recently, a local area woman vanished after she withdrew money from an ATM machine. About three weeks ago, I returned to my vehicle after withdrawing cash from an ATM at a bank in the Glenbrook basin. An obviously homeless man approached the window of my vehicle and asked for money. My window was rolled up, and as I saw him approach, it startled me, and I locked my door.

I told him no that I did not have any to give him. He was a large tall muscular fella, and he gave me an intimidating glare because I did not give him any money. This man proceeded to approach three more vehicles in an attempt to get money.

Two weeks later, I was approached for money again at a fruit stand in the Glenbrook basin. This was a different man, but he also glared intimidatingly when his wishes weren’t complied with. I don’t drive to town often, so to be approached like this twice in such a short time span has me very concerned. And what happened to the woman who is missing after she left the ATM machine? Is Nevada County safe anymore?
