Thieves interested in ATM machines struck at two businesses in Crockett on Wednesday, Sept. 28. The perpetrators went to a lot of trouble to gain access to one machine. Ishfaque Seehfar, owner of SNS Express in the 1500 block of East Loop 304 said the attack on his business will cost him more than $6,000. According to Seehfar, unknown persons not only damaged his ATM machine while stealing money from it, they also ripped the sink out of the restroom wall, leaving a hole all the way through to the outside of the building. Also on Sept. 28, a business in the 1900 block of East Houston Ave. was burglarized, with the ATM machine being the apparent target. The Crockett Police Department is investigating both incidents.
