Men in worker uniforms rob ATMs at Atlanta hotels

by WSB-TV ,Atlanta ,Georgia

ATLANTA (AP) — Police are looking for two men who broke into ATMs inside two metro Atlanta hotels.

WSB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1lb4hIs ) surveillance video shows the robbers were dressed as maintenance workers and broke into the cash machines in front of hotel guests and employees.

College Park police Maj. E.W. Strozier says the robbers appear to have stolen more than $14,000 from an ATM at the Renaissance Hotel in Atlanta. They weren't so successful on May 1 at the Marriott Atlanta Gateway in College Park, where Strozier says they managed to break into the ATM's shell but couldn't access the vault.

Strozier says police suspect the men may have worked ATM maintenance jobs in the past and perhaps kept keys or equipment that helps them get into the machines.
