DOVER - Three masked men tried to steal an ATM from a store during the weekend, authorities said.
The men backed up a late model black Dodge Ram to Seven Star Food store at 15634 Dr. Martin L. King Jr. Blvd. about 10:37 p.m. Sunday, Hillsborough sheriff's deputies said. One of the men had a handgun and guarded the clerk, deputies said, while the others tried to remove the ATM with a hand truck. The men left, traveling north along Forbes Road, without the machine.
