CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago police are investigating after at least two ATMs were stolen within minutes of each other Thursday morning on the city's Northwest Side.

Surveillance video captured the people who smashed the window of a convenience store in the 4400-block of North Elston Avenue in Mayfair and stole the ATM inside about 4:10 a.m.

The owner of Nick's Pantry shared the video, which shows two men putting the ATM into a car and driving away.

It was not immediately clear if the crimes were related.

Chicago police said no one was in custody later Thursday morning.
