MEN FAIL TO STEAL ATM FROM BEER STORE
Investigators are looking into an attempted ATM theft in Grand Prairie.  At about 4 a.m. Monday, officers responded to call at Doc's Beer and Wine on the 3000 block of Claremont Drive to find the door ripped off the building. A review of the surveillance video showed two men in a maroon van attempting to steal an ATM from the business.  The men failed and fled the scene, leaving behind some of their tools and hopefully a few fingerprints.
