connectVideoThieves crash truck in California, gas station to swipe ATM
Officials in Sacramento County are on the hunt for the three suspects in a pick-up truck to smash through a gas station in the retail space and steal an ATM.
RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. – Sheriff’s detectives are looking for three men who stole an ATM from a Rancho Cordova gas station early Thursday morning and the dramatic surveillance images show how it all played out.
Just after 4 a.m., the driver of a red pick-up rammed into the glass window of a Chevron gas station on Folsom Boulevard.
Surveillance video shows a man with a ski mask pushed his way through the glass to get into the mini-mart and then strap a type of cables or tie-down around the ATM.
Only a few moments later, the driver punches the gas and the ATM shock by what was left of the glass.
Another camera in the direction of the parking lot shows three men loading the machine in the bed of the truck before speeding off.
The incident happened in a matter of about a minute, but it caused great damage to the shop front.
Hours after thieves took out of the ATM, there was still enough evidence of the crime that took place. There was glass scattered across the pavement, stones falling from the front of the building and a part of the ATM, still on the sidewalk.
The owner tells says no one was in the store when the burglary happened and nobody was injured.
If the owner of the store starts the process of cleaning up the mess, detectives are in the early stages of their research. They believe that this was not the burglars’ first stop.
