Watch This ATM Machine Get Blown to Bits and Pieces By Genius Thieves

By Casey Chan on at

If you're looking to steal money from an ATM, what do you do? Try to wheel it to your house and smash it until it opens? Continually rob people who try to take money out of the machine? Hmm, what about just blowing the freaking ATM up to smithereens with explosives. That's what these thieves did at a petrol station in Hampshire.

CCTV cameras captured the explosion of the ATM, and amazingly—given the size of the explosion and the proximity to a FREAKING gas station—there were no reported injuries from the blast. I have a few questions for these bomb-loving thieves though. Specifically: If you blow up the ATM in a gigantic explosion like this, doesn't that mean you blow up the cash inside it as well? And when you get to this point, why not just blow up an entire bank or something, guys? [WSJ]
