A suspect using a front-end loader hauled away a bank's automated teller machine, but police said the man ran away when an officer spotted him.(from KSAT-12)
The man drove up to the ATM at the Capital One bank at Ingram and Hwy. 151 on what police said was a possibly stolen front-end loader.
Investigators said the man smashed down the structure holding the ATM, scooped the machine into the tractor's bucket and started to drive away.
But officers then showed up at the bank. They said they saw the man driving the front-end loader and the ATM out of the parking lot.
Police said their officers followed the man as he drove the loader into a weed-covered field. But the man's escape attempt fizzled when the loader got stuck in mud.
The burglar got away, but I have a feeling he will get caught for this, or some other, crime before too long.
