Three suspects who attempted to steal a TD Bank ATM from inside a Walgreens Pharmacy are being sought by the Methuen Police Department.

Methuen authorities say the suspects forced entry into the Walgreens at 14 Jackson St., just before 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 3. They entered the store and tied a chain around the ATM located near the door, attempting to pull the cash machine out of the building with a minivan. A surveillance video showed that the smash and grab took just 20 minutes.

The suspects were able to drag the ATM out of the building and load it into the van. Police have since recovered the minivan and are attempting to locate a second vehicle involved, a late-model Honda CRV.

Anyone with knowledge of the crime is asked to call the Methuen Police Department at 978-983-8698.
