A person in South Ozone Park made off with $45,000 after snatching it from a minivan, police said.

The owner of several ATM machines throughout the city stopped at a Rockaway Boulevard bodega on Friday to replenish the machine inside and left a bag of cash on his front seat.

A witness then saw somebody smash the front window and make off with the loot, according to a police source.

The man typically leaves his stash in a safe inside his van, but this time left the cash loose, said the source.

The ATM owner operates by himself and was making rounds refilling various machines. The investigation is ongoing.
