Houston police are searching for three men after investigators said the trio burglarized a grocery store on the northwest side of town.

Investigators said the men drove the rear-end of a stolen red pickup truck August 3 around 3:45 a.m. in the front door of the store located in the 12800 block of Hempstead Highway. The men drove the truck through the front of the business repeatedly until it managed to knock over an ATM inside, officers said.

Store surveillance footage shows the men get out of the pickup truck and unsuccessfully attempt to grab the ATM, officers said. The men then ditch the truck and run away from the store on foot and empty handed.

Anyone with information regarding this burglary is asked to call Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477). The agency is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for tips leading to a charge or an arrest.
