LAUDERDALE LAKES, Fla., March 6 (UPI) -- A would-be thief in Florida failed in his attempt to steal a cash-dispensing machine using a stolen front-end loader, authorities said.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office said the unknown criminal abandoned the construction equipment outside a Lauderdale Lakes, Fla., Bank of America, where the hard-to-steal ATM is located, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Wednesday.

Sheriff's office spokeswoman Dani Moschella said no suspects had been arrested and the office was attempting to obtain surveillance video footage of the attempted theft.
