Thieves steal ATM machine from Family Dollar after breaking through front door with vehicle
ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOV) -- Thieves used a vehicle to break into the front door of a Family Dollar early Tuesday morning and got away with an ATM machine, police said.
Edward Hickman went to the store Tuesday and found it closed.
“I was going to get a bag of ice and some AA batteries,” he said.
A St. Louis County Police Department spokesperson said officers from the North County precinct responded to a burglar alarm that went off at the Family Dollar in the 11300 block of West Florissant Road just after 4 a.m. Officers saw the front doors of the store were broken.
The spokesperson said it appeared the suspect, or suspects, used a chain tied to the vehicle to steal the ATM machine. Pictures show the damaged front door and the ATM missing from the wall.
Customers were frustrated to see a favorite store of theirs had been targeted by thieves.
“I wish that this wouldn’t keep happening,” said Quaunte Crosby.
Police have not released any other information.
