UNION COUNTY, Ill. - A glass door wasn't enough to keep two burglars from stealing an ATM in late April.  Now, Union County Sheriff's detectives want to find the culprits and put them behind bars.

It happened in the early morning hours of April 28, at the Cheers Convenience store on Northeast Front Street in Dongola, Illinois.

The two burglars shattered a the store's glass door, ran in and pulled the ATM back through the door.  Investigators say they loaded the machine into a dark-colored Nissan X-Terra.  That vehicle appeared to have damage to the passenger side door.
