Would-be ATM robbers steal wrong machine

`Three would-be thieves broke into a bank in northern Malaysia but failed to make off with any cash as they yanked out the wrong machine – a cheque deposit machine instead of an automated cash dispenser, the national news agency Bernama reported Wednesday.

The three men broke into the entrance area of the bank in the northern town of Bukit Mertajam early Wednesday, and tied a rope – attached to two vehicles – around a machine, police district investigation chief Chor Ah Sing said, according to Bernama.

They jerked the machine off its hinges, sending it crashing to the ground floor, Chor added.’
