Would-be robbers caught on video ramming van into store in SW Houston

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Police hope newly released video of a smash and grab can help them catch three people who tried to steal an ATM.

Surveillance video from the 24-7 Store at 13114 S. Post Oak shows three men ram a white van into the store, attempting to knock over the ATM.

They run inside but realize the machine is bolted to the ground.

In a second attempt, the thieves try again, but it doesn't work.

They may have thought that third time was a charm, but in the end, they got away empty-handed and left the van behind because it got stuck.

If you recognize the men in the video, call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
