CLARKSTON, Mich. – Police are searching for two men who attempted to break into an ATM at the Pine Knob Wine Shoppe around 5 a.m. Saturday. 

According to police, a blue 2000 Jeep Cherokee had been driven in reverse through the front window and into the store. The vehicle came to a rest on top of the ATM and could not be moved. Deputies requested two K-9 units to assist them in tracking the men down. Officers were not able to locate the men.

Police said the vehicle had been stolen from the parking lot of the Hidden Lakes Apartments.  

The registered owner of the vehicle, who lives in White Lake Township, was contacted by the White Lake Township Police Department. 

Both of the men were wearing hooded jackets and gloves. The incident is still being investigated.
