HAMMOND, LA (WAFB) - Louisiana State Police deputies are looking for suspects who drove through a glass wall and stole an ATM from the Hammond Office of Motor Vehicles.

Investigators say the suspects backed into the front glass wall of the OMV, then used the vehicle to break the floor-mounted ATM from its mounting bolts and load the ATM into the trunk.

The ATM was the only thing stolen during the burglary that happened between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m.  All license plates and license equipment were accounted for.

Authorities believe the suspect vehicle is a white or light-colored sedan with damage to its rear fender and right rear quarter panel.

If you have any information on this incident, call Louisiana State Police at 985-543-4155.
