nypdThe New York Police Department is looking for a gang of brazen thieves who have stolen at least 73 ATMs from around the city.

Police say the group struck first in 2013. The thieves have used crowbars and other tools to yank the doors off the cash machines.

They have robbed ATMs in every borough except Staten Island.

The New York Post reports that the gang struck last week at a midtown Manhattan ATM that’s right around the corner from a police station.

The Post says the thieves struck a pizzeria in the West Village on the same day.

Nineteen stolen cars have been used in the thefts. The cars are often abandoned nearby afterward.
