It happened around 5 a.m. at the Exxon located in the 1600 block of Virginia Avenue.

According to police, three black men backed into the gas station with a van and stole an ATM.

Police were called to the scene after a driver passing by saw the three men running out of the Exxon, so he called 911.

Investigators said the van involved was found a short distance away from the Exxon.

"A good thing is that there are numerous video cameras here at the location," said College Park Police Major Lance Patterson. "So we will get with ownership to review that footage as soon as possible."

Major Patterson also said a similar accident happened sometime last year.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the College Park Police Department.
