A GPS device led police to four men after an unspecified amount of cash was stolen from an ATM inside a Rite-Aid in Tustin on Wednesday, officials said.

Officers responded to a burglar alarm around 3:23 a.m. at the store in the 13100 block of Jamboree Road, according to a news release from the Tustin Police Department.

When the officers arrived, they found the front door of the store had been pried open and the ATM had been broken into, the release stated.

By following the signal from a GPS device hidden in the money, authorities were able to track the alleged burglars to a gas station in south Orange County, according to the release.

Two were taken into custody at the scene, while two others fled in a vehicle.

They were soon taken into custody as well.

An undisclosed amount of cash believed to be from the ATM was located inside one of the vehicles belonging to the suspects, the release stated.

All four men were arrested and booked on suspicion of burglary.

Anyone with information was asked to contact Detective Haug at 714-573-3246.
