RCMP are looking for four suspects after the Esso in Tofield sustained serious damage in an attempted ATM robbery.
Around 4 a.m. four people wearing gloves and masks rammed the gas station with a vehicle. One of the suspects was armed with a gun and ordered two employees into another room while they attempted to attach a tow strap to the ATM.
Police arrived on scene before the suspects were able to remove the ATM, and the suspects fled towards Strathcona County in a black pickup.
A white pickup was abandoned by the suspects at the scene.
Officers briefly chased the black pickup, but the suspects and the truck are still at large.
Police have not provided a description of the suspects.
None of the employees were injured during the robbery.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Tofield RCMP at 780-662-3352 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
Tofield is about 70 kilometres east of Edmonton.
