About 2:40 a.m. in the 2100 block of Defense Highway in the Crofton area, the county police said, robbers backed a pickup truck into a 7-Eleven store in an attempt to “steal an ATM” from inside. They didn’t get it, and police said they are looking for them, and for a truck with damage to the rear bumper.
In another incident, two men were sentenced to prison Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Washington in the beating and robbery of a man who was refilling ATMs throughout Washington.
Federal prosecutors said that last Nov. 15 in the 300 block of P Street NW, the robbers took a backpack “filled with cash.”
The amount involved may be suggested by the restitution they were ordered to pay: $52,000.
