Thieves steal ATM from Carmel Valley 7-Eleven

Several men in a stolen vehicle yanked an automated teller machine out of a closed 7-Eleven in Carmel Valley Thursday in the latest of a string of similar crimes.

The ATM heist on Torrey Del Mar Drive was discovered at about 5:15 a.m., according to San Diego police Officer Brad Ruff. About 6:20 a.m., a stolen sport utility vehicle believed to have been used by the suspects was found on Clarkview Lane, he said.

Though 7-Elevens are known for being open 24 hours, the store was closed at the time of the burglary, Ruff said.

Several closed businesses around the county have been robbed of their ATMs in the wee hours over the past few months. In many of the cases, stolen vehicles used in the crimes have been found nearby shortly afterward.
