SAN DIEGO — A motorist slammed a pickup truck into a Midway District pharmacy Tuesday morning, then a group of bandits in a separate vehicle got out and loaded an ATM into the back of the truck before fleeing, police said.

Dispatchers received reports around 3:40 a.m. of a crash at the Walgreens near the intersection of Rosecrans Street and Midway Drive, San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros said.

A motorist driving a silver pickup truck crashed through the front door of the store, then at least four men in a van following behind the truck got out and loaded an ATM -- which had been knocked over in the crash -- into the back of the truck before the two vehicles fled, Delimitros said.

The 24-hour store was open at the time and two Walgreens employees were inside, but neither were injured, police said.

Officers searched the area and found an unoccupied pickup truck, with an ATM in the back, in the 2100 block of Hancock Street, about a mile away, Delimitros said.

It was not immediately clear if the bandits were able to get any cash out of the ATM, the officer said.

No suspect descriptions were immediately available.
