SUMMIT COUNTY, Ohio (WJW) — Masked men wearing dark jumpsuits tried to bust open an ATM outside the Giant Eagle in Springfield Township according to police.
Police Chief Jack Simone said witnesses saw three men comitting a “smash and grab” with a stolen Ford-350 pick-up-truck tied to the machine with chains around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.
“In their effort to access the cash box they forcefully pulled open the ATM causing significant damage to the machine’s exterior and adjacent property,” Simone said.

Simone said officers recovered the money stolen from the ATM.
