The Chicago Police Department is looking for assistance to identify two men wanted for stealing ATMs from businesses on at least 10 separate occasions during a span of more than one month, authorities said.
In a community alert issued Saturday night, police said two men are believed to have been responsible for 10 thefts between April 21 and May 23. In each incident, the offenders use a brick or crowbar to break the door of the business and gain entry, police said. They then used the crowbar to remove the ATM machine and carry it out into a vehicle.
The suspects were seen in a 2020 silver or gray Dodge Charger with tinted windows and no license plates, authorities said.

- 4200 block of West Madison Street on April 21 at 4:12 am
