SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego police arrested two men Friday who were found in the back of a U-Haul truck with a stolen ATM, and sought a third suspect in connection with the theft, police said.
The ATM was stolen about 4:30 a.m. from the Seafood City Supermarket, at 8955 Mira Mesa Boulevard, according to San Diego police.
Three thieves allegedly broke out the front glass and used a chain to pull the machine from its foundation, police said. A witness at a nearby gas station called police.
The trio sped from the scene and were later spotted on Interstate 15 traveling at a high rate of speed, police said. Officers followed the truck onto Interstate 8 then to Fairmount Avenue where the truck came to a stop after driving through a construction site on Aldine Drive, police said. The truck's driver fled from the scene.
Two suspects, identified by police as Jimmy Hamilton and Gregory Moore, both 29, were found in the back of the truck with the stolen ATM, police said.
They were arrested and booked into San Diego Central Jail for suspicion of second degree burglary, grand theft and receiving known stolen property, according to jail records.
Detectives were working to determine if the theft was related to any other robberies or attempts, including an attempt to steal another ATM from a Lakeside grocery store about an hour earlier.
Three suspects allegedly broke into the Fresh and Easy Neighborhood Market, at 9728 Winter Gardens Boulevard, and tied a rope around an ATM but were unable to steal the machine, according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department. That trio then fled in a U-Haul truck.
