EL CENTRO — A stolen U-Haul truck was reportedly used early Sunday to smash into a business’ storefront and steal an ATM machine from inside, the El Centro Police Department reported.

Officers were dispatched at 3:15 a.m. to the business in the 600 block of Wake Avenue in response to an alarm activation and observed that the storefront had been smashed in and something heavy had been dragged from the store. The business’ owner subsequently confirmed that the store’s ATM machine was taken, an ECPD press release stated.
