Smash and grab

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Police have recovered a white pickup truck used in a smash and grab robbery, but the suspects are still on the loose.

It happened around 2:45am at the Texaco Food Mart in the 3800 block of South Gessner at Westpark.

A clerk said five to six men in a white pickup truck slammed into the front of the store. The men then jumped out, and one of the suspects robbed the clerk while the others loaded the ATM in the back of the pickup truck.

All of the suspects then jumped back in the truck and drove off. The truck was later found in the 10,000 block of Westpark Drive at an apartment complex.

The suspects have not been arrested. Police are now reviewing surveillance video to try and identify the suspects.

The clerk was not injured.
