GREENWICH - Greenwich police say they are on the hunt for two burglars who broke into a grocery store through its roof Friday night to rob an ATM.

Police say the two burglars smashed their way into the A&P Fresh on East Putnam Avenue, a few feet from the store's ATM, and got away with an undisclosed amount of money.

Officers recovered a sledge hammer, ax and crow bar at the scene but say the suspects evaded the store's alarm and were barely picked up by surveillance cameras before climbing back up through the ceiling.

Anyone with information on this incident is urged to call the Greenwich Police Tip Line at (203) 618-8875
