Caught On Cam: Smash & Grab
Thieves use pickup truck to smash into store and steal ATM in a matter of seconds.
An ATM was stolen in a smash-and-grab burglary in southwest Houston, Texas Wednesday.
Police said a dark-colored Ford pickup truck backed into the Super Way food store in the overnight hours.
Surveillance video captured three men working together to lift the security gate, pick up the ATM that was bolted to the ground and then drive off with it.
A store employee said the ATM was stocked with about $4,000 in cash.
"They took the ATM machine and I think that's the only thing they took," said Linh Nguyen. "I never thought that this would happen to us. We are a neighborhood store and have really nice people coming around."
