LANHAM, Md. (WMAR) — Police are looking for three suspects who were captured on video driving a truck through a 7-Eleven store and stealing an ATM machine.

Prince George's County Police say they responded to the 7700 block of Finns Lane in Lanham at around 1:45 a.m. on Wednesday.

Two masked suspects first entered the store and demanded all employees to get down on the ground. Surveillance video then shows a third suspect crashing a white Ford truck through the glass window of the store.

The two suspects inside are then observed grabbing the ATM, as they try removing it from the store.

Eventually the thieves are able to load the ATM into the flatbed of the truck and flee.

Later around 9 in the morning, police were dispatched to a vacant lot in Landover. There they found three stolen ATMs on fire, one of which was taken from the 7-Eleven. Nearby, officers also located an abandoned Ford F-250 that was used in the robbery.

Detectives believe the incident is linked to other ATM thefts in the region.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 301-772-4905.
