CHICAGO — Police are investigating after a crash-and-grab crew tried to steal the ATM from a River North market on Thursday morning.
Witnesses called 911 shortly after 6 a.m. to report that a black SUV had crashed through the front entrance of Galleria Market, 340 West Superior. A Dodge Durango, an Audi, and a Jeep were involved, according to a nearby resident who spoke with CWBChicago.
Chicago cops arrived quickly enough to see at least one of the crew’s cars speeding away. Officers found the market’s ATM abandoned in the street.
Thursday’s crash-and-grab attempt comes about a month after a rash of similar crimes were reported in River North, Wicker Park, and the Mag Mile. Those burglary crews mostly targeted sneaker shops and pricey boutiques, not ATMs.
