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.

    First of all, I too watch a lot of TV. My main question is this: WHERE WAS BACKUP? The story I've heard first hand is that Denison PD "couldn't catch the guy" because a "transmission in a patrol car failed to properly function" BUT they certainly knew EXACTLY where to find the ATM machine... odd isn't it? Gets better...OK GUYS- yall get your checked before they let you get involved in a chase!! WTF? Okay, second: if Denison PD has the ability to call Sherman or Bells for backup, why wasn't THAT done? And it's awfully funny that there are 30 convenience stores between HWY 69 / Bells ... why THIS store? Why these people? Is someone on the inside helping out maybe? You should be ashamed ANONYMOUS CITIZEN OF DENISON for your racial comments and completely ignorant opinion. It's people like you that make the world the way it is today. I AM SORRY FOR TONY AND SAM!! Karma will catch up to whoever did this.

    This same thing happened on a movie. Anyone seen "Barber Shop"?? Apparently these people did.

    To Citizen...maybe the "paying NON veteran people" should have made way and respected our veterans. These people fought for our country and deserve to be recognized and shouldn't have to wait. It's all about the money to "someone" obviously and if Golden Corral gave them a free dinner, it's not going to hurt them financially. Maybe the people who like to "graze on the buffet" didn't even know it was an observed Veteran's Day. There was a parade in Sherman on Saturday...did anyone go? did anyone know?? does anyone care???

    Unknown, although this still has nothing to do with the ATM story, I'm going to respond to your comment. Golden Corrall had to serve the non-veterans that came to pay to eat. That doesn't mean they weren't still going to serve the Veterans a free meal (and kudos to them for doing so). It means the paying non-veterans needed to be served and shouldn't have to wait in a line of over 100 people to eat. The Veterans were still going to receive their complimentary meal, they just might have to wait in line a little longer to do so. Quit trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill. Show more respect to Golden Corral for what they did for our Veterans.

    Unknown, what the heck does that have to do with the ATM story?

    They left it there in a bad spot because they obviously don't know any better. They barely speak a word of English and communication is very difficult. The machine double charges your bank account as well..........maybe soemone got sick of that! I'm glad to know that they won't be in the ATM business anymore, that way the theives won't think to invade our neighborhood again.

    Sherman, why are you posting this on here? Why didn't you just call channel 12 and let them go to golden corral themselves, and find out what really happen

    Sounds to me like they need a safe in this store and why in the world would you leave money in a machine like that over night in the first place

    I work @ a senior community.I had a Veteran to come in and said an employee of Golden Correl came out about 4:30 and told the Veterans to move and give room for the paying customers.They were in a line waiting for the meal for Verterans.
