    A thief wearing a beanie hat with ear flaps robbed a Sorrento Valley auto shop of its ATM machine alongside another suspect on Friday morning, according to San Diego police.

    The pair entered the Sorrento Mesa Auto and Lube at 6609 Mira Mesa Blvd just before 8:30 a.m. , said Officer Frank Cali.

    Once inside, the two suspects cut bolts and took the store’s ATM machine before fleeing the scene, Cali said.

    Officers later found the empty ATM a few blocks away from the crime scene.

    Authorities were able to get a description of the suspects from surveillance video.

    They reported one suspect was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled over head, dark pants and white shoes. The other suspect was seen in similar clothing along with the beanie hat.

    Cali added that officers were unable to determine the gender of either suspect.

    The Northwestern Division is handling the investigation.
