Peel Regional Police have released surveillance video that appears to show a van being used to start a business ATM.
Police released the video Monday and said it is part of a three-month investigation into commercial and ATM breakages and entrances throughout the greater Toronto area.
Two clips appear in the 26 second video. The clips were filmed by surveillance cameras. Each is from separate incidents: the first is dated October 27, while the second is dated November 12.

In the first clip, a person can be seen sawing at an ATM, causing sparks to fly.
In the second clip, a black van can be seen driving away from a Coffee Time store, and an ATM appears to crash through the store’s front window, into the parking lot.
Police told Global News that when the suspects attacked the ATMs, they had a “similar modus operandi” each time, referring to the use of a van.
The police investigation of the incidents has been completed. Two search warrants were executed at Brampton on Friday. Power tools, cash and clothing were seized as evidence, police said.
