An ATM machine was yanked out of a Huntington Beach barbershop and stolen early Saturday morning.

The robbery was reported at 12:50 a.m. in the 19000 block of Brookhurst Street, Huntington Beach Police Department spokeswoman Jessica Cuchilla told City News Service.

“Upon arrival, officers located a business window shattered and an ATM missing,” Cuchilla said. “This investigation is ongoing.”

A news videographer at the scene reported the circumstances were similar to a string of ATM robberies in the Inland Empire caught on surveillance video, showing thieves shattering a window, hooking a line onto an ATM and pulling it out with a white pickup truck.
