Utah County police were looking for two men suspected in at least two ATM robberies early Monday morning.

Orem police Lt. Craig Martinez said the first crime occurred at 1:30 a.m. when the duo hooked up a pickup truck to the door of an ATM at the Alpine Credit Union, 1510 N. State Street. The rig then ripped the door off the machine and the thieves emptied it of cash.

A short time later, the same vehicle — a full sized Ford, quad cab pickup — was used to rob another Alpine Credit Union ATM in neighboring Lehi, at 120 N. 850 East.

The truck is described as white with chrome bed caps, black door handles and "4 X 4" on the back of the bed in gray lettering.

Descriptions of the men were not immediately available.

Anyone with information about these cases is asked to call Orem police at 801- 229-7070 or the Lehi police at 801-768-7110.
