The morning before Halloween, a team of five thieves – at least one of them in a hockey mask – stormed a local BP store to steal their ATM.
It happened around 4:00 a.m. Monday morning.
The thieves came in two separate mini-vans. One used to crash into the front window of the store on State and Brookpark Roads. The other was used as a getaway vehicle.
The store clerk in a 911 call said he scrambled to keep himself safe as the team of five made it in and out of the store in just a few minutes.
About two hours later, the getaway van and the emptied out ATM machine were found in a field on the city’s east side.
Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call Parma Police.
