Malaysia’s mission impossible: rob a cash machine

Wed Aug 16, 2006 4:25 AM BST145

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – Malaysian bank robbers have botched a second daring attempt to steal a cash machine when an excavator they used to carry out the heist got stuck.

Thieves toiled for almost an hour with a stolen excavator to dig two cash machines out of a bank branch in the northeastern town of Kuala Terengganu on Tuesday.

But they were forced to flee empty-handed when the excavator’s digging arm got stuck in the ceiling of the bank, Malaysian newspapers reported on Wednesday.

A week ago, thieves in northwest Penang state used a rope to tie an automatic teller machine to a truck and haul it through a glass wall and down a flight of stairs — only to discover they had grabbed a cheque-deposit machine by mistake.

In another recent case, thieves loaded a cash machine onto a truck but abandoned it when they discovered it had no cash.
