A group of brazen thieves made off with a large sum of cash after raiding an ATM at a police station, police in India said.

New Delhi Police said that the thieves also broke into a tea shop, which is located inside the station and fled with around 5,000 rupees ($81).

The incident unfolded early on Monday morning, when most of the staff members were in a state of deep sleep.

Later that morning, an officer who tried to withdraw some cash from the machine, realized that the ATM was burglarized overnight.

The police station was shut down while investigators were going over evidence. Police said that it is possible that the thieves had an accomplice inside the station.

They are examining surveillance camera footage to identify the suspects, but so far, no arrests have been made.
