Thieves in southwest Calgary got away with an ATM overnight.

Thieves in southwest Calgary got away with an ATM, leaving behind only a chain, overnight Saturday.

Police said at least three people — heavily clothed with covered hands and faces — were involved in stealing the BMO ATM from the Strathcona Rexall between midnight about 12:15 a.m.

Officers said the suspects pried Rexall’s doors open, put a chain around the ATM and drove away, leaving the chain behind.

Police said there was no security tape of the parking lot, meaning no description of the getaway vehicles.​

There was approximately $5,000 cash inside the ATM at the time — the same amount as the property damage caused in the incident.
