Police are hoping the public can help them solve a break in at the Marathon Station on Ky. 36 in Williamstown.
They may be related to three other break ins that occurred recently at Peg’s Pit Stop in Corinth and the Jonesville Country Store.
According to police, at least two, possibly three suspects, broke out a side window around 12:30 a.m. on Feb. 26.
The suspects ransacked the office and attempted to destroy a security camera. Eventually they gained access to the ATM and stole an undisclosed amount of cash.
Sgt. Robert Reed of the Williamstown Police Department is in charge of the investigation.
While the suspects attempted to destroy the video camera, Reed said he was able to save some of the footage.
"The video showed all kinds of traffic going by but you wouldn’t necessarily notice because of how they made entry," Reed said.
Reed said it’s possible they also used a lookout and scanner or walkie talkies to communicate.
"We believe the suspects are local and that they were also responsible for the other break ins because of similarities between them," Reed said.
