MADISON, Tenn. – Authorities have recovered an ATM, which was stolen during an early morning crime spree that stretched through Robertson County and the Goodlettsville area. Three suspects remain at large. 

Authorities were called to the scene at Hickory Chase Court and Hickory Chase Drive in Madison near Old Hickory Boulevard Wednesday morning.

Officers said three suspects in a red truck allegedly stole an ATM in Robertson County in the 800 block of Highway 25 in Cross Plains around 3 a.m.

The suspects reportedly broke into the business and somehow the ATM came loose from the wall. They then loaded it in the truck. The suspects then attempted to take another ATM at a store in Goodlettsville.

Several agencies were already searching for the suspects' vehicle, when they spotted the red pick-up in Goodlettsville. From there, a pursuit ensued all the way to Madison.

Three suspects were able to flee the scene on foot. 

The ATM was found at a construction site in Millersville. The empty cashbox was found about 100 yards from the location. 

Police were working to determine how much cash was inside the ATM at the time it was stolen. They estimated it contained $4,000 to $5,000. 

Officials said one of the suspects, a female, was taken into custody, but police were still searching for the other three with the assistance of K9 officers.

One was described as a black male around 18-24 years old. He was wearing a long sleeve black shirt and tan pants. He had a military-style haircut.

The second suspect was also a black male, age 18-24, wearing a long sleeve black shirt with a hood. He had on a white t-shirt underneath with blue jeans and dark colored shoes.

Detectives said at least one of the suspects is from Texas and it's possible they targeted other businesses along the way.

Police said the two men were possibly armed due to a handgun missing from one of the convenience stores they hit.
