Some crooks got away with an ATM during a smash and grab in northwest Houston overnight. It happened at the Alba Food Store on Alba at West 34th. Police say thieves smashed a pickup truck through the windows of the store and then stole the store's ATM. Before backing the truck into the store, the thieves used chains to yank off the store's metal bars.

Authorities found the truck dumped a few blocks away. It turns out the truck was stolen. So far, there have been no arrests but police are reviewing surveillance video of the crime.
