HOUSTON – Houston police are looking for the people responsible for smashing their car through the front of a store in Southwest Houston.

The clerk said he was sweeping when he heard a loud bang and realized someone was attempting to back their van into the front of the store, police said.

The clerk said he ran to the back as the van broke through the front glass and damaged the ATM, officers said.

Three men exited the van and attempted to take the ATM, but were unsuccessful.
