Spectacular bank heist fail caught on camera as robbers flee scene
At least four perpetrators traveling in three vehicles were filmed attempting to rob a Credit Lyonnais ATM on the corner of Avenue Jean Jaures in Pernes-les-Fontaines in the middle of the night.
Their efforts were filmed by a nearby resident who was awoken by the chaos. Footage showed how they repeatedly rammed the bank’s cash dispenser with their tow truck before the vehicle itself became trapped in the building’s walls.
After several attempts to dislodge the trapped truck, the panicking thieves set the vehicle alight and made a speedy, somewhat embarrassed getaway in the two other cars they had driven to the scene.
