Gone in 70 sec: 5 men steal ATM from Family Dollar

Posted: Updated:

It took little more than a minute for five men to break into a Family Dollar store in southeast Atlanta and steal the ATM, according to the Atlanta Police Department.

That's the word from police at the scene in the 2700 block of Lakewood Drive. The men pulled up to the store in a van, got out and used a tool similar to a crowbar to pry open a front door. Once inside, they rocked the ATM off of its base and carried out to place it in the van. They drove off.

Police recalled this series of events after reviewing surveillance video from the store. They also revealed that all five men had covered their faces.
