CARNEY, Md. (WJZ) — Neighboring businesses on Harford Road were hit by would-be ATM thieves about a month-and-a-half apart, Baltimore County police confirmed.
On Tuesday morning about 4:30 a.m., a group of thieves drove through the front of the 7-Eleven at 9414 Harford Road and attempted to steal the machine, WJZ has learned. An employee told WJZ the ATM could not be taken because of a Redbox machine was located outside the store. The employee said there were no injuries.READ MORE: Maryland Dept.
