Two ATMs were damaged early Tuesday in robbery attempts in the same shopping center just north of the U.S.-Mexico border.
Workers cleaned up shattered glass and boarded up windows at a check cashing business and nearby pharmacy in Otay Mesa.
San Diego Police were called to Palm Avenue and Beyer Road around 3 a.m. after a group of three or four people were seen running from the area.
A Chase bank ATM located inside the CVS was pulled through the front door, officials said. The same thing happened to the machine located inside the check-cashing business.
Investigators will look at business surveillance cameras for any clues as to who may be responsible.
