A thief who tried to rob an ATM machine is making quite a buzz for his choice of vehicle. The criminal drove an excavator and then used it to smash the ATM. Sadly, all that effort gone into vain as he left without getting a single dollar out of the machine. Police said the excavator was stolen from a construction site and the suspect drove it five miles to reach the spot.
"I've seen some crazy stuff with ATMs and all, but I haven't seen this before," said police Captain Ed Bowe.
Not only did the man not make zilch in his attempted loot but he ended up causing damage of about $10,000 to the ATM.
In a statement, police said they believe the same man was involved in a different ATM theft in 2016. Click for more trending news
