Texas police busted eight people who were reportedly in the middle of stealing an ATM from a 7-Eleven in Denton, Texas. The suspects are accused of burglarizing more than 50 ATMs in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, according to Fox News

Detectives from the Plano Police Department said they received leads earlier this week about several ATM heists in the city. During a previous burglary, suspects allegedly crashed a stolen truck into a convenience store, smashed out the windows, wrapped a chain around the ATM, and dragged it out of the store.

On June 1 around 6 a.m., investigators and members of the SWAT apprehended the eight suspects as they were stealing an ATM from a 7-Eleven. Dewayne Turner, 29, of Dallas; Cortaveya Jean Jackson, 25, of Mesquite; Danaijay Jacoby Derrett, 24, of Dallas; Dominique Marquis Childress, 27, of Dallas; Joseph George Milton Turner, 29 – Dallas; Leroy Alvin Walls, 26, of Dallas; Louis Edward Coleman, 37, of DeSoto; and Marlon Briscoe, 24 were all charged with second-degree felony theft of an ATM.
