Building damaged in ATM theft attempt


SCRANTON (WOLF) -- An attempted ATM heist left damage at a building in Scranton..

Pictures show the suspect trying to pull an ATM out of the building at 3 W. Olive St. by using a chain, but it didn't work.

The machine was bolted to the ground. The car was discovered around 4 a.m., with the chain still attached, building co-owner Brigitte Burke said.

The would-be thief was apparently spooked and ran away, leaving the car behind. A pair of glass doors was broken during the attempt. Police are investigating.
