CHICAGO (CBS) – Two bank technicians were robbed of quite the haul in West Pullman late on Wednesday afternoon.

As CBS 2’s Jermont Terry reported, we can first tell you the employees are safe despite getting held up at gunpoint. The two workers were not unarmed guards – instead, they were at the Chase Bank at 11721 S. Halsted St. to fix a broken ATM at 5:35 p.m.

Chicago Police said the armed robbers ambushed the technicians, then ordered them to empty the entire machine.

Sources confirmed the crooks walked away with a handful of metal devices from the ATM that were filled with money. Sources confirmed that money amounted to $150,000 – taken within a few minutes.

As police investigate, detectives will look to determine if the robbers jammed the ATM and waited for the two technicians to come fix it.

Police helped a technician load up his equipment, and while shaken, the two employees were not injured.
