Another ATM smash n' grab -- San Diego, CA

Thieves smashed the door of a downtown San Diego deli early Tuesday and hauled away an automated teller machine, police said.

The ATM was taken from BB's Deli in the 1300 block of Fifth Avenue just after 5:30 a.m., according to police.

The suspects reportedly hauled the ATM away in a rented Penske truck.

Store owner Al Kazzazi says he is unsure how much money was in the machine, but he believed it was under $1,000

"How much money can you get from an ATM really? How many of them do you have to steal to make a living? We're a small operation. Anybody who's going to break into a deli is really a desperate person," he said.

Kazzazi said the business would be open despite the theft.
