Burglars try to yank out convenience store ATM

A gasoline and convenience market just south of Whitworth College was damaged early today by burglars who broke out the front doors and tried to yank out an ATM from inside the store.

Sheriff’s deputies said about 4 a.m. two men wearing masks used a white Infinity QX to break into the A-1 Gas & Grocery, 9914 N. Wall St.

The thieves put a chain around the ATM machine and tried to yank it free, but they were unsuccessful.

A.J. Fingh, the store manager, said the doors will cost at least $3,000 to replace, and that there was other damage to the building. The business remained open this morning.
