Four masked men dressed in black crashed a pickup through the glass doors of the Target on Presidential Parkway and stole the ATM shortly after 1:20 a.m. Tuesday.
The men were in a silver Chevrolet extended cab truck that is believed to be stolen and was later recovered at Shadowwood West Apartments on W. Highland Drive off Mercer University Drive, according to a news release from the Macon Police Department.
A surveillance video shows the truck ramming the doors to gain entry.
The truck pulls out of the camera range and then backs up again to knock the machine off its foundation.

The men then loaded the ATM into the truck bed and drove off, leaving mangled door frames and shattered glass in its wake.
The automated teller was found in the 4800 block of Ebenezer Church Road, just a few blocks from the store.
"We sustained some serious structural damage and are working to make the store safe for our customers," said Lauren Barnett, store manager. "We are participating actively with the Macon Police Department to pursue this assailant to the fullest extent of the law."
Barnett said it did not appear that any merchandise was taken.
Enough repairs were made to allow the store to open at 8 a.m. as scheduled.
At about 4 a.m. on Nov. 22, another ATM was taken under similar circumstances at the Lizella Market in Bibb County.
Four men in a white over blue Chevy pickup backed into the front of the store, loaded up the ATM and fled from Holley Road.
Anyone with information about the heists is urged to call Macon police at 751-7500 or Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at (877) 68CRIME.
