Two men broke into a convenience store early Saturday morning and stole $1,000 to $2,000 from the ATM, according to a Denton police report.

Police responded to the store alarm in the 300 block of East McKinney Street and found a broken window. Officers found the cover of the ATM popped off and the cash container pried open.

Everything else in the store seemed undisturbed except the ATM and the rack next to it, officers reported.

A similar burglary was attempted at a convenience store in Justin, the Denton County Sheriff’s Office told Denton officers.
