A brazen trio was caught on video ripping an ATM out of a Philadelphia grocery store Tuesday morning using a stolen U-Haul truck, authorities said.

The theft happened around 5 a.m. at 7-Days’ Mini-Market located at 2462 North 29th Street in North Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Police Department said.

The suspects backed the stolen U-Haul box truck to the front doors of the store and hooked a chain to the ATM in the store’s vestibule, according to police.

Surveillance video showed the truck yanking the ATM through the doorway and into the street.
