Florida Man Tries To Steal From ATM With Blow Torch, Welds It Together Instead

Deputies are looking for two would-be thieves who tried to rob an ATM machine with a blow torch, but ended up welding it together.

Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Deputies say early Friday morning, two white men entered the second floor of the Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island. Deputies say surveillance video shows the men attempting to cut the ATM with a blow torch, but they instead welded the metal parts shut. A worker who came to service the machine found the burn marks on the hinges and locks.

Deputies say one suspect had on a black half nose mask with black sunglasses, a black leather style jacket, camo pants, desert tan military style boots, and black gloves. The other suspect wore a tan toboggan style hat, a scarf around his face, a black long sleeve Under Armour shirt, black gloves, black shorts, and white tube socks with multiple colored stripes.
