Bumbling Suspects Try and Fail to Steal ATM From Harris County Court Annex
Two suspects used a truck to crash into the court entrance of a Harris County, Texas, government building to steal an ATM on April 15 and it did not go well. This surveillance video was taken from the Harris County Precinct 2 John Phelps Annex.
After the pickup truck crashed through the door, one man used a ratchet strap to hook to the ATM, ran back to the truck and couldn’t get into the passenger door. He jumped into the back of the truck and the driver went back through the crashed entrance. The thieves were not successful in taking the ATM.
The Pasadena Police Department said a temporary wall was constructed and a few days later, someone broke back into the building but it was unknown if the two incidents were related or if anything was taken.
