Man Steals Backhoe, Drives It Five Miles To Try To Tear Into An ATM, Fails

June 8, 2017


This is some surveillance footage from a Bank Of America in Prince George's County, Maryland, (PG County represent! Just kidding, I lived in MoCo) of a man who stole a backhoe, drive it five miles to this location, and attempted to rip open an ATM with the machine. According to police, the ATM was too heavily armored to break into, and the man fled the scene without any money. They're also still looking for the suspect, so if any of your neighbors have a backhoe parked in their yard with pieces of an ATM in the bucket, you might want to notify the police. Presumably for a reward. Actually, just give me their address and I'll call.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Anthony S, who agrees if you're going to try to break into an ATM, use an army of trained insects like not an idiot.

    Like watching a bear try to break into a trash can.

    How much did he think he could possibly have gotten out of that thing?

  • GeneralDisorder

    Considering it's one attached to a bank it could have over $100,000 in it

    Each "cash cassette" has up to 2200 bills in it.

    A better attack would have been to put the big bucket down and ram the machine or put the rear hoe over the top of the machine and try to rip it out of the ground. From there he could have scooped it out, took the machine to a truck and worked on defeating the safe in the privacy of his neighbor's garage.

    ...... anyone else a little concerned by how much thought GD has put into this....? Just me..?

    He was trying to break the money-printing gnome out, so he could use his services for himself. Everybody knows there's no money in ATM's, it's just printed by the gnome they have imprisoned in each one.
