ATM stolen from 24-hour gas station as shocked employee watches

On Sunday morning, a group of men took an ATM from a Ravenswood gas station that was open for business, while one employee watched.

According to Chicago police, three masked individuals entered the Citgo at 1745 West Foster at 4:01 a.m. and carried the ATM out the front door. They threw the cash machine into a white Infiniti with a damaged rear-side window and sped away.

In a strange coincidence, Chicago police officers working on another case discovered an ATM inside an Englewood home a few hours later.

According to a second police report, officers were hunting for a stolen car when they noticed a suspicious individual leaving a home in the 7200 block of South Yale with a duffel bag. They entered the premises and discovered an abandoned ATM, although it was unclear whether it was the one seized from Citgo.

The cops removed the ATM from the premises and transported it to the police station to be inventoried as found property.

Earlier this month, a group of males drove a Jeep through the front glass of a 24-hour currency exchange in the South Loop and stole its ATM. Crews for the TV show “Chicago Fire” were prepared to film a scene in the 500 block of West Roosevelt as the smash-and-grab occurred.
