FENTON, Mo. (KMOV,com) -

Detectives with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department are trying to identify the thieves caught on surveillance camera stealing an ATM. The machine was stolen from Stuckmeyer's Farm Market and Greenhouse near the intersection of Highway 141 and Highway 21.

Randy Stuckmeyer told News 4, "When something happens like that it kind of hurts a little bit that stuff goes on."

Surveillance video shows a silver-gray SUV, that may be a Chevy Suburban or Tahoe, driving onto the property in the early morning hours and two men getting out while a third stayed in the vehicle. Investigators say the men broke through a window and then cut a chain to remove the ATM. 

The machine was later found mangled and empty in a dumpster in an alley near Eichelberger and Morganford in south St. Louis. The ATM only had $460 in it but was valued at $2500. 

The business installed the ATM on a temporary basis during the busy month of October when many customers visit their pumpkin patch. 

"We have a lot of people come out, you know just a convenience for them if they need spending cash for their kids to do any of our rides," said Stuckmeyer.
