Attempted burglary suspects are seen here reportedly trying to steal at ATM machine from the CVS/Pharmacy on Post Street. If anyone has any information regarding incident contact Det. Simon Brown at (530) 642-4717.

A trio of would-be thieves tripped an alarm after backing a stolen truck through CVS/Pharmacy’s front doors in an alleged attempt at stealing the El Dorado Hills store’s ATM machine, according to El Dorado County Sheriff’s Lt. Tim Becker.

The incident occurred at 2:18 a.m. Thursday at the Latrobe Road/White Rock Road location. Once inside, the suspects reportedly tied a cable or rope around the ATM and twice attempted to drive away with it. Both times failed.

Deputies arrived three minutes after the alarm activated; however, Becker states in a press release, “The subjects responsible for the damage had already left. Through video surveillance, deputies determined that at least three subjects had arrived at the CVS store in two pickup trucks.”

The stolen truck, a white Ford F-350 used to destroy the doors, was found a block away, still running, Becker added. It was found to be a new, unregistered truck — later determined to have been stolen from a new car dealership in Folsom. The red pickup truck also seen on surveillance was not found, the press release states.

There is no further suspect information at this time.

If anyone has any information regarding the identification of the red vehicle or suspects they are asked to contact Det. Simon Brown at (530) 642-4717.
