VIDEO: Would-be thieves rip open ATM in botched heist on Florida Blvd. Tuesday morning
BATON ROUGE - A pair's failed attempt at stealing from an ATM was caught on camera, and now police are looking for the suspects.
The crime was caught on camera around 3:30 a.m. Tuesday outside a Capital One bank on Florida Boulevard. The two masked suspects are seen in surveillance video ripping open the machine with crowbars, with a pickup truck carrying a heavy-duty chain just feet away.
After about a minute of trying to wrestle the ATM open, the two sprint back to their truck and drive off empty-handed.
