AURORA – Thieves in Aurora attempted to steal money from an ATM using some heavy equipment, but the plan wasn’t exactly successful.

The suspects reportedly used a front-end loader to try to steal money out of a Wells Fargo ATM. But Police say its almost impossible to even get money out, let alone with a front-end loader.

The suspects were able to knock the ATM over but walked away empty handed.

People in the area say this is the second time this month that thieves have tried to use a front-end loader to steal money from the same ATM.

“Holy cow, that’s a pretty desperate way to score a few bucks, seems to be, it would be a lot easier just to get yourself a job.”

Local police say officers are still searching for the suspects.
