SAYREVILLE, NJ (WCBS 880) – It’s the second week in a row that a crew of burglars made off with an ATM along Ernston Road in Sayreville.

“Yeah, we believe that it’s connected with the Raceway gas station,” says police detective Jeremy Berry.

Berry says that’s where thieves smashed the front door and grabbed an ATM and money from the cash registers in 54-seconds.

Well, this time, it was the same pattern nearby early on Monday.

“[It] looks like a truck either backed up or drove into the storefront at the Shopper’s Express. In the process, [they] knocked over the ATM,” says Berry.

They took cash, cigarettes, and the cash machine.

Surrounding counties also looking at similar thefts.

Berry says there were two local break-ins earlier this month they believe are connected, but there was no good surveillance ID. Suspects are wearing big coats and hoods.
