Sus­pects are still at large af­ter an early Mon­day morn­ing crash that broke down the en­trance of a lo­cal Wal­greens Phar­macy in La Plata in an at­tempt to rob the store’s ATM.

The Town of La Plata Po­lice Depart­ment is cur­rently in­ves­ti­gat­ing the crash and at­tempted rob­bery that took place at about 2 a.m. June 26 at the Wal­greens, lo­cated at 6300 Crain High­way in La Plata.

Ac­cord­ing to Capt. Chris Becker, there was an at­tempted theft where the sus­pects tried to gain ac­cess to the store’s ATM, but hey were un­suc­cess­ful.

“This is still an ac­tive in­ves­ti­ga­tion and we are ask­ing any­one who was driv­ing on [U.S.] 301 [around that time] with in­for­ma­tion to come for­ward,” Becker said. “No em­ploy­ees were present when this in­ci­dent took place.”

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, video from sur­veil­lance cam­eras has been pulled.

The lo­cal store man­ager did not pro­vide any in­for­ma­tion when asked about the in­ci­dent.

Po­lice said this ap­pears to be an iso­lated in­ci­dent and is ask­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion to call the depart­ment at 301934-1500.
