Two sought in ATM theft




The Cincinnati Enquirer

        HAMILTON — Police on Saturday were still searching for two men who tied up a convenience store clerk and tried to make off with the store's automatic teller machine early Friday.

        Police say the men, one carrying a chrome semi-automatic pistol, entered the Dairy Mart in the 600 block of Ohio 128 about 4:20 a.m., forced a clerk into a back room and tied him up. The men took the ATM from the store, loaded it onto a van and tried to drive away. The money machine fell from the van as the robbers pulled out of the parking lot. The machine was recovered and no money was taken from it.

        No one was injured.

        The van was later found abandoned in the 1800 block of Sky Meadow Drive in Ross Township and was found to have been stolen from Cincinnati, police said.

        Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Hamilton Police Department's Adult Investigation Section at (513) 868-5811, ext. 2002.
