Atlanta police seek 5 men they say stole ATM

Atlanta, GA - ATLANTA, GA (AP) - Police are seeking several men they say tried to steal a cash machine from the Biltmore Hotel in downtown Atlanta.

Police tell The Atlanta Journal Constitution that five men were seen dragging the ATM out of the hotel around 3:40 a.m. Monday. The men pulled it to the sidewalk outside the hotel but drove away leaving it there when they were unable to load it in a pickup truck.

Police say the truck, which had been reported stolen earlier this month, was found later. Police did not immediately find any of the suspects. The incident is the latest in a string of ATM thefts or attempted thefts in Atlanta in recent months.
