In a daring and audacious act of theft, a group of robbers successfully pulled off the brazen heist of an entire Automated Teller Machine (ATM) by tethering it to the back of a van following a bold bank robbery in Oakland, California, as reported by KTVU.
The ATM was forcefully detached from its foundations outside a Bank of America on Hegenberger Road, and the incident unfolded in broad daylight on a Sunday morning.
A shocked bystander captured the entire event on video, providing the footage to local news outlet KTVU. The recording showcases the thieves securing the ATM to a van using a rope before speeding away, causing sparks to fly as the metallic machine scraped against the road.
Witnesses on the scene estimate that three to four individuals were involved in this startling and audacious theft.
