HAMMOND- Police are looking for two men who tried to rob an ATM using a blowtorch sometime between Sunday and Monday morning.

Surveillance images at the Capital One on Southwest Railroad Avenue captured two men, one with protective facial gear and another carrying a welding torch and a gas tank attached to his back, near the machine. Police told ActionNews17.com, the men used their tools to try and get in to the ATM.

Despite their efforts, the hopeful thieves were not able to get to the cash inside.
