Police are looking for the group of masked thieves they say tried to steal an ATM from a Houston Methodist hospital in northwest Harris County.

Officials tell Eyewitness News five to eight people broke in through a window in the cafeteria of the Willowbrook location.

They grabbed the ATM and began carrying it out of the building, until a security guard making his rounds saw them.

The thieves dropped the ATM and took off in two vehicles.

Police are checking surveillance video to see if cameras caught a better look at the thieves or the vehicles.
