The door of the ATM was ripped off, but all the cash remained inside the machine, police said.
Methuen detectives found a cell phone near the entrance of the store, as well as "check stubs belonging to a male party out of Lawrence," according to the police report.
Investigators have not yet confirmed the items were in fact left behind by the pair, but they collected DNA samples from them.
"Hopefully we can use that evidence to track these guys down, and that's the mistake they made," McCarthy said.
The clerk reported there was no license plate on the brown Honda CRV.
