Botched ATM Heist

I was on my way to Peasant Pies and saw this at the corner of Diamond and 24th in Noe Valley. I’ll bet it was really bright (as in light, not smart) for the people in the nearby residences. Whoever did this wasn’t terribly good with a torch. The safe is still inside it, intact. More pics after the jump.

    wow, that’s um, something. I wonder if the theives ever thought that perhaps the whole blowtorch and pliers approach might not be the most subtle or fast way to rip off an ATM?

    the 2nd to most impressive one I saw was when some guys chained a jeep to a wall-mounted one, and literally ripped out the thing from the wall and dragged it across a parking lot.

    but the most impressive? the theives who bought one, put money in it, set it up in a mall, and used it to steal PINs and account #s. No one realized what was up until a month later there was a rash of ID thefts….

    Maybe the owners lost the combination?
