Five cars were used in the crime and Jones said police found one of the vehicles.

The five men reportedly forced three workers to lie on the floor before they rigged the ATM with explosives.

She said no shots were fired.

“One of the workers injured his leg in the attempt to escape.”

Jones said all men were still at large and police were investigating.
