Three arrested men after failed ATM theft in Queen Anne

Seattle police responding to a report of people breaking into a Queen Anne supermarket on Monday morning found three men, shattered glass and a destroyed ATM.

Witnesses called 911 around 4 a.m. and reported people breaking into a supermarket in the 2400 block of Sixth Avenue West in Queen Anne, but they had left in a van before the police arrived.

Additional officers arriving to the scene spotted the van and arrested three men inside.

The 39, 52 and 56-year-old men were later confirmed to be at the grocery store after investigators watched surveillance video from the store.

The impounded van contained pieces of the damaged ATM, a metal chain, a jacket with “Police” on the back and a watermelon.

Officers arrested the men on investigation of burglary and booked them into the King County Jail.
