San Diego police were searching for about a half-dozen people who slammed a truck into a store in the Midway District of San Diego and ripped out an ATM machine early Tuesday.
A white or silver Ford F-150 backed into the front door of a Walgreens Pharmacy at Rosecrans Street and Midway Drive at about 3:30 a.m., leaving the door frame mangled and glass scattered around the entrance.
About five to seven people loaded the ATM machine into the truck and took off in the truck and a van, suspected to be an escape vehicle. Both vehicles were reported stolen from National City overnight.
The people were wearing gloves and had their faces covered, witnesses told police.
The 24-hour store was open at the time and two people were inside, both Walgreens employees, but neither were injured, SDPD said.
While officers were investigating the crash site, a truck with an ATM inside and a van were located about a mile away at a storage facility. The ATM still had the cash box intact.
Officers searched the facility on Hancock Street for any of the robbers, but none were located.
