The report came from Wells Fargo Security who were watching the ATM via Security cameras and they reported that possibly they were attempting to steal ATM using a white pickup truck.

Police arrived and found the ATM damaged, along with a chain and straps that were still attached but no white pickup truck.

No suspects were located, but, patrol officers located a white Ford F350,  believed to have been involved,  unoccupied in the In-N-Out parking lot about 5 minutes later. The engine was hot and there were burglary tools inside the truck.

It was discovered the truck was stolen earlier in the evening from a residence on Buena Vista in Burbank.

Repair work on the ATM took most of the day because of the damage caused.

The case is currently under investigation.
