HILLSBORO, Ore. (KPTV) — Hillsboro police are searching for two suspects who used a tractor to break into an ATM on Tuesday morning.

At 2:15 a.m., police received a report that someone in a tractor drove through a Wells Fargo ATM, at 7200 Northeast Butler St.

Police told a TV station the suspects got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

According to police, the suspects took off in a U-Haul.

Officers caught up with the U-Haul and tried to stop the driver, but the driver would not pull over and a pursuit ensued.

Officers decided it was too dangerous to continue pursuing the driver and ended the pursuit.

Not long after, police received a report of suspicious activity on Northwest Aloclek Drive near Northwest Evergreen Parkway.

When officers arrived to the area, they found the U-Haul abandoned. Officers believe the suspects ran off into the woods near that area.

The suspects have not been located, and there are no descriptions available.
