According to a police report, officials responded to Four Points Mini Market, located at 1017 N. Gettysburg Avenue, just after 5:30 a.m. on a burglary alarm. Officers found the entry door to be heavily damaged and pulled away from the framing, as well as a table and food products on the ground.

Officials reviewed surveillance video that showed an individual enter the store after gaining access by ramming the front door with a truck, described as an older model GMC or Chevy. The subject then hooked the ATM up to the truck and fled north while dragging the machine.

Officers advised there was reportedly a second subject, only mentioned as having a female build, that appeared to have been the lookout person due to them pacing back and form on Kammer Avenue, the report stated.

A muffler, possibly belonging to the truck, was also reportedly found at the intersection of Kammer Avenue and Tyson Avenue.

No arrests have been made in either incident.
