    Plano police say two people are in custody early Thursday morning, accused of crashing through the front of a youth recreation center in an apparent attempt to steal an ATM.

    It happened at about 2 a.m. at the PSA2 facility, which is along Seabrook Drive.

    Investigators said the two suspects drove a van through a glass wall near the entrance to the building, triggering an alarm. The suspects then tried to wrap a chain around the ATM and drive off.

    Officers got to the scene quickly enough that they were able to chase the van down the road and into a dead end, where they eventually apprehended the suspects.
