CHICAGO — The crash-and-grab burglary crew that nearly stole an ATM from a River North market on November 30 has tried to steal ATMs at least two other times, Chicago police say, but their attempts failed each time.
At about 6:09 a.m. last Thursday, witnesses saw the burglars crash a black SUV 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.
Police arrived quickly and saw at least one of the crew’s cars speeding away. The store’s ATM was found lying in the street.
The group tried and failed to take the ATM at the same store around 7:18 a.m. on November 19, according to police. About 30 minutes later, the crew attempted to take the ATM from a gyro shop in the 200 block of South Halsted. They failed again.
CPD’s community alert said the crew had used rocks, bricks, or a vehicle to access the businesses. Police described the suspects as three or four males of unknown race, between 18 and 24 years old. They wore dark hoodies with black ski masks.
