Alberta RCMP are looking for witnesses to an ATM theft at a convenience store early Saturday morning in the town of Oyen.

Police said two masked individuals broke through the front of Deb Mart around 6 a.m.

The pair used a Ford F-350 to smash through the main entrance of the store and pull out the ATM, police said.

The two thieves then returned to the store to steal cigarettes and lottery tickets from the counter, police said.
