A group of thieves take the entire ATM from the Bingo Casino at Mount Vernon and Grove this morning.

Surveillance video shows the crime happened at 4:23 a.m.

"The video is just devastating because they just plowed into the door with the white zebra truck," said May Oglesbee, manager.

Two thieves that are hiding their faces can be seen breaking into the front door. One of the suspects placed a tow rope around the ATM before it was driven out of the building.

The video shows a white truck with black lower trip and black striping. 

"A very unique type truck," said Officer Charley Davidson, Wichita Police Dept. He added that the truck is a 1990s model GMC or Chevy 2500 extended cab long bed pickup. 

Oglesbee is upset that the thieves not only took the ATM, but caused several thousand dollars worth of damage. 

The damage also included to the table that carries special meaning to the business.

"Oprah Winfrey played bingo here one night when she was coming through Kansas. The table that she sat in is gone. I don't know. I'm just sad," said Oglesbee.

The Bingo Casino had their previous ATM taken back in 2016, but managers said this time, these thieves were more brazen in how they got the machine out of the building.

"I hope that justice is done for the people that did this," said Oglesbee.
