Seems like everyone is taking an economic tumble these days….
LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) – There’s probably an art to stealing – and cracking open – ATMs. But a man apparently hasn’t figured out what it is.
Police say a 49-year-old man was arrested for prying an ATM loose from a credit union early Sunday by using a stolen skid loader. Then, in a bid to break open the cash machine, police say the suspect used the skid loader to drop the 3,000-pound machine straight down a 50-foot wooded embankment.
But things didn’t go as planned. When the skid loader dropped down the hill, the man went with it.
The suspect took a wild ride down the embankment from the skid loader cage. The man, skid loader and ATM tumbled downhill through the woods.
