Police are looking for a pair of suspects who smashed a truck into a Valley grocery store in order to steal an ATM machine. The incident occurred slightly before 3 a.m. Tuesday morning at the Givorns Foods on Fairfax Bypass in Valley. Police arrived and discovered the front glass doors had been smashed open, but no suspects were found in the building.
Police were later able to review security video that showed a white Dodge Ram pickup truck had been driven through the front of the store.
The security video showed the truck initially backing into the glass windows at the front of the store and then pulling out, turning around, and reentering front first through the hole it had just made. Two male suspects then exited the truck and stole a freestanding ATM machine by loading it in the truck bed.
Using the tag number from the truck, police were able to determine the vehicle had been reported stolen the previous day in Duluth, GA. The stolen vehicle was registered to a subject from Covington, GA. Valley Police are currently working with Duluth and Covington Police in hopes of identifying the suspects.
Police say the suspect vehicle should have damage to the front, rear, and both sides. The vehicle was described as a white 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 extended cab pickup truck with a Georgia tag number AZI 2117. The suspects were only described by police as unknown black males.
This incident is still under active investigation.
