UPDATE: Police are looking at surveillance video from Dupaco, after burglars crashed into the business attempting to steal a cash machine early Thursday morning. 

Burglars got away, leaving the cash machine behind. Waterloo police were called to an alarm at the location a little after 3:30 a.m. 

Dupaco Chief Marketing Officer, David Klavitter says the cash machine almost works like a safe, except it dispenses only the exact change tellers need. 

Despite the damage, the location on Schukei Road in Waterloo, near San Marnan, is back open this afternoon. 

Customers who came in to Dupaco, where alarmed after hearing about the burglary. 

"It's ridiculous why can't they go out and work for their money just like you and I do, we work everyday," said Dupaco customer Cathy Ortiz. 

Dupaco would not comment on the pending investigation, but did confirm that Waterloo Police are reviewing their surveillance footage.

"Next time they may get away with something, and that's just not fair to other people," said Ortiz. 

Waterloo Police say as they've been reviewing the footage from the incident, they've noticed several people drove by during the burglary, but nobody called or reported it to police.

If you have any information, or you did drive by at the time, please contact Waterloo Police.

UPDATED:  This morning, a huge tarp covered a window near the entrance to the Dupaco Credit Union on Schukei Road in Waterloo.

Police say a car backed into the building through a window overnight.

The suspects tried to steal a cash machine.

They got it outside, but left it behind when they took off.

Police are looking at surveillance video and are also investigating whether this crime is connected to 3 other recent cases of vehicles slamming into stores.

A Dupaco spokesperson says nothing was stolen and they were planning to reopen this morning.
