OKALOOSA ISLAND, Fla. — These thieves must have failed their industrial arts class in high school.
Instead of grabbing the money, the two men botched the job by welding the hinges of the ATM shut, the Sheriff’s Office said.
A worker who came to service the ATM on Saturday at the Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island found burn marks on the machine's hinges and locks, according to the Sheriff Office's Facebook post.
“Instead of cutting the ATM with the blowtorch, the would be thief welded the metal parts shut and the pair left with nothing,” the Sheriff’s Office wrote.
According to video surveillance, two white men with their faces covered entered the building around 3:15 a.m. The Sheriff’s Office released still shots from the surveillance cameras.
