The sheriff’s department is asking for the public’s help in finding two suspects who rammed a truck through a Ramona market and made away with an ATM machine early Friday morning.
Responding to a 4:15 a.m. burglary alarm at Ramona Farms market located at 838 Main St., deputies found an empty store but the business’s steel-framed front doors were torn off their hinges.
“It appeared the suspects cut the lock and a chain securing the front doors and attempted to pry the doors open. Unable to gain entry, they used their truck to ram the doors,” according to a report from sheriff’s detective Jacob Macleod.
Using a chain tied to their truck, the suspects then pulled an ATM machine from its foundation that was inside the market and drove away, Macleod reported.
The driver was described as a heavyset Caucasian or Hispanic man who was wearing a green jacket, blue pants,
tan boots, and a black balaclava covering his face, according to Macleod. The passenger was also described as a Caucasian or Hispanic man, but with a medium build, wearing all black clothing and using a black T-shirt to cover his face.
The vehicle was a white or silver Ford F250 or F350, with a long bed, extra cab and silver running boards, according to Macleod.
Anyone who may have information about the crime is asked to call the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department at (760) 789-9157.
