    Thieves reportedly used a stolen utility truck to smash through a  door to a Costco store in Danville early Sunday morning and then dislodge an  ATM inside, Danville police said.

    The burglary happened shortly before 3 a.m. Sunday at the Costco  at 3150 Fostoria Way.

    Two suspects reportedly rammed the roll-up doors at the main  entrance to the store with the truck. Once inside, they used the truck to  remove an ATM from its foundation, police said.

    Police said they had surveillance video of the crime, but did not release it Monday.

    The suspects took the ATM, which contained an undisclosed amount  of cash, but abandoned the truck inside the store, police said.

    Investigators found that the truck had been stolen from an East  Bay Municipal Utilities District yard in San Ramon.

    Police were following up on leads in the case today, and were  asking anyone with information to call Detective Brian Sliger at (925)  314-3711.
