Thieves Steal ATM From Walgreens Store in San Mateo

A Walgreens in San Mateo remained closed Wednesday night, almost 20 hours after thieves drove right through its front doors and drove off with an ATM.

Police said it happened around 4 a.m. at the store located on 3rd Avenue and Ellsworth, and that the thieves used a stolen vehicle for the heist.

Both the car and a pried-open ATM were found about a block away.

It’s unclear how much money was stolen.

The Walgreens was closed all day except for the drive-up window, and it’s not certain they’ll be opening Thursday.

Police said there is surveillance video that they may release.
