DENISON, Tex. -- A walk-in convenience store in Denison is now a drive-in after an ATM was stolen when someone drove their vehicle through the store and made off with the cash machine.
"Somebody drove in last night, broke into the ATM machine. It looks like they tied machine with a truck or something and dragged it out and took it," the store manager said.
They did get surveillance video from the store, so they know they are looking for a white Chevy pickup.
The store manager, whose family owns the store, says the landlord will pay for the damages, but they have to take care of the rest.
The cash machine was later found near Bells, Texas, but there are no suspects and there was no money in the machine.
The manager says this has never happened before.
"Yeah, it’s always quiet. Most people, we know them. Regular customers. Neighborhood store, you know."
The manager says the machine belonged to the store. He says its worth about $3,000, and it was probably holding about $1,000.
The store is on Loy Lake Road near Hyde Park Elementary School in Denison.
