LANHAM, Md. (FOX 5 DC) - Prince George’s County police have released surveillance video that shows alleged thieves using a pickup truck to smash into a Lanham 7-Eleven storefront in order to steal an ATM machine.
Police – who responded to the scene around 1:45 a.m. – say two suspects entered the store in the 7700 block of Finns Lane ahead of time and ordered people to “get down on the ground.”
The suspects then reportedly lay on top of the employees to protect them from the debris.
A third suspect plowed into the storefront, and then all three pushed the ATM into the bed of the stolen vehicle.
Around 9 a.m., police were called to a vacant lot in Landover where they found three stolen ATMs on fire.
They say at least one ATM was stolen from the Lanham 7-Eleven.
Police found the stolen pickup truck near the fire.
