Officers responded to alarm call for a burglary in progress at the CVS Pharmacy located at 6601 Everhart Rd.
Upon arrival a witness informed Officers that a silver van was seen backed up the business doors and that 5 to 6 subjects had taken the ATM that was located inside.
Officers were able to view the security video and see that several male subjects entered the store, wrapped a chain around the ATM and attempted to drag the machine out of the store. They were unsuccessful in their first attempt. During the second attempt they were able to pull the entire machine from inside the store and leave the area with it.
Officers located the abandoned van one block over from the CVS. The van had been stolen from the 500 block of S. Staples just prior to the burglary. The ATM was not located. An undetermined amount of cash was within the ATM when it was taken.
