Fresno Police are looking for suspects in a bold burglary, that involved the ramming of a truck through a store’s front door, and then the theft of an ATM.
The burglary happened, at the Yosemite Market on the intersection of Chestnut and Getttysburg. The owners opened up the business less than a year ago, and had installed over 13 surveillance cameras in and around the store.
“I never thought that would happen that way,” said store owner Neena Shergill. “When we saw the video, the whole door was down. I freaked out.”
Shergill got a call just after 2 A.M., about the break-in.
“It’s insane,” said customer Brian Hoffman. “I drove up this morning, and saw that a car had driven into the store. It’s surprising.”
In the surveillance video, the two masked suspects were seen trying to pull the doors off, by using chains.
“But the chain came off, maybe broke,” said Lieutenant Joe Gomez with Fresno Police. “So they took the truck, backed it into the doors to gain entry, ran into the store and took the ATM.”
The ATM was thrown into the bed of a tan-colored truck, which police believe will be easy to recognize.
“There was a plate attached, but its not a car plate,” said Lt. Gomez. “The truck could be stolen, should have damage to the bumper from backing into here.”
For Shergill, who said the suspect didn’t take anything other than the ATM, she has lost her sense of security.
“If it could happen when the door is locked, there’s always a chance that it can happen during the business hours too.” said Shergill. The store’s owners hope anyone with information will contact Police.
