Newark Public Safety Director Anthony F. Ambrose requests the public’s help in identifying the below pictured male suspects in connection with a theft of cash from an ATM that occurred today.

According to police, at approximately 10:05 a.m., two males entered Desmany 24-Hour Store, located at 785 South Orange Avenue, and pried open the store’s ATM, removing $1,000.00 in cash before fleeing.

Police viewed the suspects on surveillance camera using a crowbar to open a side door on the machine.
