Two burglars spent no time fiddling with an ATM, but instead took the machine with them.

Police are looking for suspects who on July 8 at 4:30 a.m. stole an ATM from the Jackson Hole Diner at 69-35 Astoria Blvd. in Jackson Heights.

One suspect can be seen on video breaking through the bottom half of the diner’s door. He then grabbed the machine, yanked the cord out and within seconds slid the machine out with him.

The diner closes on Mondays at 1 a.m. and opens at 6 a.m.

Suspect number two allegedly waited outside in a light-colored Honda SUV. They loaded the ATM, which reportedly held $9,000, into the vehicle and took off.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 577-TIPS. The public can also submit tips by logging onto nypdcrimestoppers.com, or by texting 274637 (CRIMES), then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.
