Canton— Thieves smashed a van through the front of the Emagine Theater on Monday trying to steal an ATM, but couldn’t dislodge the machine.
The damage did not disrupt business and the theater at 39535 Ford is showing movies, said Gerard Gratiot, assistant manager.
A night manager of the theater called Canton police at about 6:30 a.m. to report a Ford van had been driven through he front doors, according to a press release from the Canton Police Department, causing a lot of damage.
Two suspects jumped out of the van and tried to steal the automated teller machine in the lobby. When they couldn’t take the machine, the two got back into the van and drove away.
Gratiot said a restoration company has come in, cleaned up the scene, covered up the damaged entrance and the theater opened as scheduled.
The case is under investigation and anyone with information is asked to call Canton Detective Bureau.
