THUNDER BAY — Thieves broke into a north-side convenience store early Wednesday morning and hauled away a cash-dispensing machine.

The incident occurred just before 4:30 AM at High Street Variety at the intersection of Van Norman and High Streets.

The perpetrators gained entry to the store by smashing a large window in the front.

Once inside, they disconnected the ATM, then dragged it outside through a rear door.

The thieves apparently loaded the machine into a waiting vehicle.
