SANTEE -- Four thieves stole cash from ATMs at two stores in Santee and Rancho San Diego less than an hour apart early Monday morning. 
 
The first break-in occurred at around 1 a.m. at a Walgreens at 10512 Mission Gorge Road. San Diego County Sheriff’s deputies arrived to find an ATM cracked open. Surveillance video showed four men in hoodies armed with crowbars, deputies told 10News. 
 
The second theft happened at about 1:45 a.m. at a Rite Aid at 2516 Jamacha Road.  In that case, four suspects ripped open the front doors and tried to drag out the ATM before breaking it open and stealing cash.  
 
In both cases, the suspects fled in a sedan. 
 
Deputies are investigating.
