BRINDISI, Italy, Aug. 5 (UPI) -- Italian authorities said thieves used a bulldozer to break into a supermarket and escape with safes filled with money.

Investigators said the masked thieves used trucks to block off access to the rear of the supermarket in Brindisi when it was closed overnight and the bulldozer crashed through the gate and metal door to get to the room where the safes were kept, ANSA reported Monday.

The truck drove off with the safes, which were believed to contain more than $132,000, police said.

Police said the incident was recorded by security cameras, the Italian news agency said.
