HOUSTON, July 9 (UPI) -- A Houston convenience store owner said thieves rammed a pickup truck into his store early Monday and dragged away an ATM.

Rocky Lam, owner of the Quik Saver store on Jensen, said the thieves rammed the pickup truck into the shop around 3 a.m. Monday and left behind the vehicle's tailgate, a Ford emblem, the cover of a red tail light and a piece of heavy chain, the Houston Chronicle reported Monday.

Lam said the burglars smashed display cases, the checkout counter and rows of shelves in their quest to drag the ATM out of the store.

The business owner said there was about $2,000 in the ATM, which he said was recently moved from its former position near the front door to the rear of the store to deter theft.

Lam said police are investigating the incident.
