Police say the suspects drove an SUV that was stolen out of Clinton Township through the gas station storefront and dislodged the ATM, which was bolted to the ground. After getting the cash machine, the crooks fled the scene.
Macomb County Sheriff’s deputies later stopped a car that was tailing the stolen SUV on I-94 near 8 Mile Road. Two suspects were apprehended but the SUV got away. Those suspects are now being interviewed as police review surveillance video to get a better picture of exactly what happened.READ MORE: Salvation Army Collecting Supplies For Back To School Drive
