RAMONA–Two unidentified burglars early Friday morning pulled an ATM machine from its foundation inside a grocery store in Ramona, San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said.
The Sheriff’s Department received a commercial burglary alarm around 4:15 a.m. at the Ramona Farms Market, located at 838 Main Street. Upon arrival, deputies discovered the steel framed front doors were torn off the hinges. Deputies searched the interior of the business, but found no suspects inside.
