Smash-and-grab robbers take ATM from 24-hour store

BROOKLYN, Ohio -- Officers with the Brooklyn Police Department are looking for the minivan that drove off with an ATM.

The smash-and-grab robbers hit the BP at Tiedeman and Brookpark Roads around 2:45 a.m. Thursday.

Employees of the 24-hour store told Fox 8 that the van backed into the store and two masked men got out, loaded the ATM, and drove away. The two employees inside ran to a freezer for safety and were not injured. The BP gas station is open today despite the damage.

Brooklyn Police said the grey van, which has heavy back-end damage was reported stolen out of Cleveland.

Police located the van a short time after the smash-and-grab on Martin Luther King and Dryden around 8 a.m. Thursday.

The search for the suspects continues.
