Police said at one of the gas stations, a video showed a pick-up truck pulling an ATM out of the store

NORTH BRANFORD, Conn. — Two ATMs gone from North Branford gas stations have investigators working with surrounding towns for answers. 

Police said they responded to the Shell gas station at 1371 Middletown Avenue on a burglary alarm around 1:15 a.m.

When they got there, officers found extensive damage. Officials said surveillance video showed a gray pick-up truck showing up.

"Multiple suspects forced entry into the building," Dep. Chief James Lovelace with the North Branford Police Department said. "They wrapped a cable rope device around the ATM and ripped it out of the building and fled before officers arrived.

They were gone before police officers arrived. 

A short time later, another burglary alarm went off at the Mobil gas station at 271 Foxon Road. There, police said suspects also broke into the store and took the ATM there as well.

"The suspects had forced entry through the front door and removed another ATM from the commercial business," Lovelace said.
