INDEPENDENCE, MO (KCTV) -

A task force has been formed to help crack the case of bandits going to great lengths to steal from ATM machines across the Kansas City area.

The thieves have stolen from seven ATMs and attempted to steal from 10 ATMs from November through this week. The ATMs have been in Kansas City, KS, Independence, Blue Springs, Overland Park, Shawnee, Lee's Summit and Johnson County.

The suspects have struck ATMs at banks, gas stations, movie theaters, grocery stores and retail stores.

According to the Jackson County Sheriff's Office, the suspects have used a heavy truck, possibly an SUV, with a tow strap or chain tied around the ATM to yank it off its foundation. The suspects also used various tools to pry into the ATMS.

At least one woman and a man are involved.

If you have any information, call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS or the sheriff's office at 816-524-4302.
