Top 5 Surveillance Videos of the Week: Thieves Steal ATM With Front-End Loader

Other top surveillance videos of the week include the theft of a thousand-dollar puppy, a woman versus a treadmill and more.

The coronavirus has had a serious impact on our daily lives. Not even the top surveillance videos of the week are immune to COVID-19.

Due to much of the country (and world) being quarantined, there is unsurprisingly a lack of new interesting surveillance videos. In order to make sure we can keep bringing you this weekly feature to help lighten the mood in these trying times, we will temporarily be reducing the number of videos from 9 to 5.

Now, on to this week’s top surveillance videos…

One would assume that when committing a robbery, you would want to be as stealth and discrete as possible — meaning heavy machinery would be last on your list of potential resources.

That didn’t stop a group of brazen thieves in Australia from using a front-end loader to steal an ATM from an outdoor shopping mall.

Surveillance video shows the thieves using the machine to smash through security bollards, drive right up to the ATM and hoist it away. Police later found the front-end loader and empty ATM on the grounds of a nearby school.

Also this week…

Ever since the coronavirus outbreak began, hygiene has been top of mind for people around the world. Imagine the horror this woman in California felt when she discovered several strangers spit all over her front door.

Surveillance video shows the masked, skateboarding suspects walk up to the home’s door, spit on it and then nonchalantly walk away.
