A giant hole was left behind after burglars struck a convenience store overnight.

Five people have been arrested in northwest Houston after driving through the wall of a convenience store and stealing an ATM.

It happened at the E-Z 7 Food Store at the corner of North Houston Rosslyn Road and Woodsman Trail.

Investigators say the suspects drove a white pick-up through the store's brick wall, then loaded the ATM onto a minivan. The suspects got away but were arrested within a couple hours of the burglary.

Witnesses at the gas station across the street got a good look at the truck, helping officers track down the pick-up at an apartment complex down the street. A third vehicle was also involved and towed.

The minivan with the stolen ATM has not been located.

Police believe four to five other people were involved in the burglary. Investigators are still looking for them.

Of the five people arrested, police say one of them is a 15 year-old boy. The others include one woman and three men. Police have not released their names or charges at this point.
