MOUNT PLEASANT, Pa. - State police are trying to find two men who used a pickup to drag an automatic teller machine out of a gas station convenience store in Mount Pleasant and then drive away with it.
Troopers from the Uniontown barracks said the incident happened just before 3:30 a.m. Wednesday at Speedy Meedy's, a BP store.
Surveillance video shows the men pulling open the store's doors and then using the vehicle to pull the machine outside, where they loaded it into the dark-colored, short-bed pickup before driving away. Investigators said the entire robbery took the men no more than three minutes.
Police said both men were wearing long sleeves, jeans, masks and gloves to avoid identification. Authorities said the men were last seen driving south on Route 982.
Speedy Meedy’s manager Casey Martin told Channel 11 News that she was called minutes after the incident.
“I was so shocked. It upset me a good bit. It's like something you wouldn't see happen around here. It's like something I would have been watching in a movie,” Martin said.
Shift manager Philip Luccioni said he and his colleagues had the store cleaned up by Friday.
“We’re going to have to replace the cooler that ripped all the framing off. It smashed both of the front doors,” Luccioni said.
Anyone with information on the theft is asked to contact police.
