Thieves Captured on Camera Breaking Into Fresno, California Store to Steal ATM

Two men in Fresno, California, used a truck to smash through a door and steal an ATM from a store, police said.


Fresno Police uploaded footage of the incident, which took place on Monday morning. Officials are hoping that the security footage will lead to information on the suspects in the robbery.

The burglars were able to haul away the ATM. It’s unclear how much cash was inside the ATM, but at least one person saw the crime.

In the incident, which took place at 1:00 a.m., the thieves pulled up in an early 1990s tan Chevy Silverado, ABC30 reported.

“He was driving on the road, but when he saw something going on, he backed up and came, and by the time he was here they were already gone,” said Neena Shergill, the store owner.

Police believe the Chevy may have been stolen, and they could have been using a fake license plate starting with “7DN.” The truck suffered damage to the left-rear bumper.

The suspects are between 5 feet 9 to 6 feet tall, and weigh around 200 pounds, police said, according to The Fresno Bee. They were seen wearing blue jeans with black and gray hooded sweatshirts.

“They appeared to know what they are doing. They were relatively quick– they didn’t waste any time,” said Lt. Joe Gomez with the Fresno Police Department.
