Police investigating two ATM thefts

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Thieves stole automated teller machines in Kearny Mesa and the South Bay early Tuesday, emptying them of cash, then discarding them on roadsides, authorities said.

Shortly before before 1:30 a.m., bandits used a stolen car to yank an ATM from its foundation outside a Valero station in the 5300 block of Kearny Villa Road in San Diego, then took the cash and left the machine behind along with the vehicle, SDPD Officer Dan Lasher said.

About an hour later, thieves broke into a market in the 900 block of Eighth Street in National City and carried out a cash machine, Sgt. Alex Hernandez said. Later, most of the pried-open ATM was found about seven blocks away, near a carwash, and another piece of its shell turned up in the City Heights.

It was unclear if the two thefts were related, police said.
