DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Police in Dallas are investigating another attempted ATM heist. The incident happened at around 2:30 a.m. at a CVS Pharmacy location located along Walnut Hill Lane, near North Central Expressway in the northern part of the city.
Authorities at the scene stated that the suspects rammed into the front of the store several times, and got deep inside in an attempt to reach the location’s money machine.
But the heist was not successful, as the ATM was still there when officers arrived at the pharmacy. The ATM is securely bolted to the ground and cannot be moved. Surveillance video indicated that the suspect vehicle backed into the money machine several times, but was unable to get it dislodged.
However, the group of four suspects did cause significant damage to the front area of the store, which was closed when the attempted theft took place. There were no injuries reported, but authorities are searching for the people responsible for the incident.
The suspects were wearing masks, gloves and hoods. Their vehicle has been described as a red Chevrolet Suburban that is now showing signs of front-end damage. Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 214-373-TIPS. Crime Stoppers is offering up to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest and indictment.
North Texas has seen a rash of similar ATM smash-and-grab thefts and theft attempts since the beginning of the year.
