COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A red Jeep left a gaping hole in a gas station storefront Saturday morning while trying to break open an ATM.

Springs police say the suspect used their vehicle to ram into the machine, taking a huge chunk of window out with it.

The attempted smash-and-grab happened at the Loaf ‘N Jug off Drennan Road and Hancock Expressway around 7 a.m. Our crew at the scene says along with substantial damage to the store, the ATM can be seen toppled on its side. It’s unknown if the suspect was successful at getting anything out of it.

Police say this was the second time Saturday the suspect had tried to break into an ATM using the Jeep, having previously pulled the same move at a Loaf ‘N Jug on Alegre Circle in Fountain. That time, the driver plowed through the store’s front doors, knocking them off their hinges. The driver did not appear to get what they came for, though 11 News is still working to get more information from Fountain police.
