ATLANTA -- Atlanta police are looking for seven men captured by surveillance cameras as they used a Dodge minivan to pull off a bold smash and grab.
One of the suspects nearly foiled the getaway.
"They were amateurs," said Gerald Boyd, who works security for the Sweet Auburn Curb Market. "Looks like it was not professional, but it was effective."
At daylight, shop owners at the Sweet Auburn market arrived to find the minivan still lodged inside the building. Most were unrattled.
"I came in, saw the van was here, that nobody was hurt," said shop owner Dionne Gant. "I had to send a message that they didn't stop us."
Surveillance video captures the first of seven suspects arriving outside the market at 4:44 a.m., Tuesday. After casing the building, a white Dodge Caravan arrives. The driver parks and waits for two other vehicles that would serve as the getaway cars.
