Man & Woman Attempt To Steal ATM At Artesia Brewers Store

On the police beat in Artesia, Police say a suspect was captured on video trying to steal an entire ATM Friday morning. A man and woman broke into the Brewer Store near 26th and Main by ramming their pickup truck through the front doors. Surveillance video shows the brazen duo rummaging aorund inside the store before. A store employee reported he saw the truck shortly before the theft happened. But the thieves didn’t get very far. Apparently they had a tougher time than they bargained for because the ATM was found just a few hundred feet west of the store with the cash box still intact. A little while later, the truck was found burned out west of the city. It had been stolen. The two thieves have not been caught.
