Police are reportedly investigating whether Philip Seymour Hoffman bought drugs at a New York ATM shortly before his tragic death on Sunday morning.

According to FOX411, a witness told police he saw what he believed to be the Oscar winner purchasing drugs from two men outside a bank near Hoffman’s apartment around 8 p.m. on Saturday.

The tipster says Hoffman withdrew a large amount of money from the ATM, and handed it over to the men, who were wearing messenger bags. Officials are currently trying to track down surveillance video from the bank.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, Hoffman was found dead in his apartment with a syringe in his arm.
