DISTRICT HEIGHTS, MD.  PG Police report that one very hard-working man has shown unique initiative in trying to build his income to the next level.  He decided to rob a bank even though it wasn’t open for business. He was caught on video as he worked diligently to get the best of an ATM machine in Prince Georges County, Md.

Despite the suspect’s extreme attempt to get into the ATM, he wasn’t able to get any money.

First, the backhoe was stolen. Then it was driven about five miles to a bank in the 7500 block of Marlboro Pike. That’s where this suspect used it to boldly try to break into an ATM. This happened on June 1, 2017, around 4:30 am. Despite the suspect’s extreme attempt to get into the ATM, he wasn’t able to get any money.

Police say he did about $10,000 worth of damage to the ATM.

Detectives believe this same suspect is also behind an ATM theft in March of 2016. In that case, the investigation reveals he and two accomplices broke into a tobacco shop on Marlboro Pike. Once inside, they stole cash and also took the ATM. Anyone with information on either case linked to this suspect is urged to please call 301-390-2160.
