ATM thieves caught on security camera

Paulding County authorities are asking for the public's help to catch two men who stole an ATM early Tuesday.

The burglary occurred just after 1 a.m. at Scott's Store in Rockmart. The suspects pulled up in a green, two-door Ford Explorer, and one used "some sort of instrument" to force the store doors open, officials with the Paulding Sheriff's Office said.

Then the suspects removed the ATM and loaded it into the back of their vehicle. They fled southbound on Highway 101 toward Carroll County.

The Sheriff's Office released surveillance video and photos of the burglary in hopes someone can identify the suspects.

Anyone with information is urged to call Paulding County detectives at 770-443-3015. Tips may be e-mailed to
