Smash-and-grab robbers break through convenience store wall in northeast Houston

Police are searching for the suspects responsible for a smash-and-grab robbery this morning in northeast Houston.

It happened around 5:30am at a Valero station on Bucan near Airline.

The vehicle crashed into the side of the convenience store, smashing a good-sized hole in the side of the building. Workers have already started cleaning up the mess, and it's pretty significant.

The store's ATM, most likely the target of this crime, was smashed into a couple of pieces. It's not clear whether the suspects got anything out of the machine, but it is no longer in working order.

The suspects left the vehicle at the scene. Houston police have since towed the vehicle for evidence processing.

This is at least the fourth smash-and-grab attempt in a week. Investigators will be reviewing the store's surveillance video, and they're asking anyone with information about the crime to give them a call.
