(ABC) - An Indio gas station owner is counting his losses after thieves yanked an ATM out of his store early Monday morning.
At least one man is on the run.
And, the owner is hoping surveillance video will help catch the people who did it.
This surveillance video shows a masked man breaking into a Shell Station in Indio, early Monday morning.
Once inside, he ties a tow rope to an ATM machine, then a vehicle outside yanks it out of the store, leaving a mess behind. The owner did not want to show his face, but did want to show his frustration. The whole burglary
only took a few minutes. The thieves worked
quickly and with a clear purpose.
The planned nature of the crime concerns the owner the most. The loss of the ATM is going to take a big toll on the owners pocket.
While he lost a lot in the burglary, the owners' investment in surveillance cameras proved invaluable.
The owner has offered a $1,000 reward for tips that lead to the arrest of the thieves.
