Suspects Sought in Attempted ATM Theft in Rancho Penasquitos

Two men attempted to pull an ATM from inside a Rancho Penasquitos store Wednesday using a heavy chain and a pickup truck.

The pharmacy is located near Twin Trail Drive and Black Mountain Road just north of State Route 56.

Two men riding in a pickup truck forced the front door open just after 4 a.m. and then backed the truck up to the door, police said.

The men then wrapped a chain around the ATM and pulled on the machine, knocking down a Coinstar kiosk next to it.

The would-be burglars left the ATM and ditched the pickup truck off the SR-56 and Black Mountain Road, police said.
