Prince George’s County Police are investigating an ATM theft at a gas station in Fort Washington that officials say may be linked to a similar incident in Washington, D.C.

At about 3:45 a.m. Friday, county officers were called to an Exxon Mobil gas station on the 10800 block of Indian Head Highway for a report of a theft, said county police spokeswoman Nicole Hubbard.

Surveillance video shows a dark-colored pick-up truck driven by two suspects smashed through the front of the gas station.

Hubbard said the ATM was pushed into the bed of the truck by the suspects, who drove off with the ATM.

Detectives are investigating whether this incident may be linked with an ATM theft that occurred hours later in the District, Hubbard said.

Officer Tisha Gane of the Metropolitan Police Department said that at 5:17 a.m. Friday, officers were called to a scene where two suspects driving a black pick-up truck stole an ATM machine on Benning Road.

Anyone with information on the identity or whereabouts of the suspects is asked to call Prince George’s County Police Department’s Southern Regional Investigation Division at 301-749- 5064, Hubbard said.
