Convenience store smash n' grab -- Houston, TX

An automatic teller machine was stolen out of a north Houston convenience store early Friday, KPRC Local 2 reported.

Houston police said four men in a pickup truck smashed their way into the Union Food Store on Nordling Road near Rosamond Street shortly after midnight.

The group used a chain to pull the ATM down the street before loading it into a vehicle, investigators said.

The store owner said he thinks there was about $2,000 inside the ATM.

The thieves left a hole in the store's brick wall. Some merchandise and shelving inside the store was also damaged.

Police have not released descriptions of the men.
