HOUSTON – Police are searching for a group of suspects who got a way after driving a van into a CVS and taking an ATM in southeast Houston Wednesday morning, according to HPD.

Investigators said the robbery happened around 2:45 a.m. on Telephone Road when six to eight suspects rammed a stolen van into the front metal gate and doors of a CVS store. The men then went inside and loaded the ATM in a second white van.

Authorities were able to catch two of the suspects, but the others were not found. Police said the ATM was recovered from the van.
