Two suspects remain on the run after using a truck to smash through the front windows of a convenience store.

The incident happened around 3 a.m. Thursday at a Victory Fuels gas station on Whites Creek Pike.

Officials with Metro Nashville Police said an entire ATM, containing more than $17,000, was taken after two suspects rammed a pickup truck into the store.

They jumped out, grabbed the ATM and put it in the back of a small Chevy pickup truck. 

Police said they then drove down Whites Creek Pike before ditching the truck a couple blocks away on East Nocturne Drive and Ilolo Street. 

According to officers, the two men got into a silver Ford full-size truck and put the ATM in the back. 

K9 officers and investigators were called to the scene to conduct a sweep of the building.
