June 22, 2018 - 6:23 am

GROSE POINTE PARK (WWJ) - Bold thieves used a truck to smash their way into a neighborhood restaurant overnight in Grosse Pointe Park.

It happened at the Howlers & Growlers Kitchen and Fill Station on the corner of Charlevoix and Beaconsfield. The suspects smashed through the glass entrance off Beaconsfield with a work-style truck and took out an ATM, which had about $900.

Police are now looking at video surveillance from the restaurant to identify the suspects.

Repairs at the eatery started almost immediately. It's expected to be open for business Friday as usual. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 313-822-6200.
