Van crashed into Northeast Baltimore CVS in another attempted ATM robbery

Officers arrived at the pharmacy and found a van backed through the front glass doors. The engine was still running but nobody was inside. Police said the van, which was stolen from a nearby neighborhood, had heavy damage and was unmovable due to flat tires.

The ATM, located just inside the glass doors, showed signs of a break-in but the cash was still inside, police said.

Citywide robbery detectives are investigating the case.

There were 70 reported ATM thefts in the city in 2020, and there have been at least 29 this year — a decline police believe could be attributable to efforts to educate small business owners about how to secure their machines.
