Duo gets away with ATM

By Lindsey Connell - bio | email

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  Columbus Police are looking for two enterprising culprits who broke into a local convenience store. Instead of going for the cash register, they got away with an entire ATM.

Early Monday morning, the duo stole a construction truck and backed it up to the front door of the Circle K on Macon Road at its intersection with Reese Road.

Police released the surveillance footage to the media Thursday.

In the footage, you can see the men attach a chain connected to the back of the truck to the front doors to pull them open.

Once they had locks busted on the doors, they looped the chain around the ATM in the front of the convenience store and dragged it out into the parking lot.

They loaded the machine into the bed of the stolen truck and drove to Dogwood Avenue off of Rigdon Road. There, investigators say they dumped their stolen getaway truck and moved the ATM into another car.

Police did not know how much money was in the machine when it was stolen.

Detectives are asking for the public's help in solving the burglary. Anyone with information is asked to call the Burglary and Theft Unit at 706-653-3424.
