CCTV shows a man wearing a black mask, long green pants and black shoes.

Video captured the man getting out of a white Ford Transit U-Haul van, opening the van doors and walking towards the front of the store. Moments later, a video shows the man smashing the glass doors with a metal object.


Once inside, the man grabs and pulls the ATM, which is bolted to the floor. After several failed attempts to remove the ATM, the man reverses the van in front of the store and crashes into the ATM to free it.

Once the ATM is detached, the man drags it outside and loads it onto the van. Police said the Ford Transit U-Haul was located at a store on Canton Road and confirmed it was stolen.

It’s unclear how much money was inside the ATM, but residents of Acworth are shocked and disappointed that a well-known business was targeted.

“It’s a nice gas station. The people who own it are really nice – super friendly. I can’t believe anyone can actually do this. It’s sad that someone comes into our community and does this,” said Brian Accurso.
