Police searching for suspects who stole ATM in Tierrasanta

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Thieves pulled a cash machine off its moorings at a Tierrasanta strip mall Monday and made off with its supply of money.

The theft in the 5900 block of Santo Road was reported shortly after 4 a.m., according to San Diego police.

Investigating officers determined that the bandits had tied straps to the ATM and used a truck to drag it out of the kiosk it was housed in, SDPD Detective Gary Hassen said. They then removed its two cash drawers and left the rest of the machine behind, along with the pickup.

"We think it's an unreported stolen (vehicle) out of San Jose," Hassen said.

It was not immediately clear if surveillance cameras captured any images of the crooks, the detective said.
