Aug. 14 (UPI) -- A British police department shared security camera footage showing a gang of thieves using heavy construction equipment to steal an outdoor ATM.

The Derbyshire Constabulary posted a video to Facebook showing the CCTV footage recorded Aug. 3 outside the Nisa supermarket in Hatton, England.


The video shows the thieves using a digger to punch through the brick wall above the embedded ATM and rip the machine out of the building.

The ATM is then loaded onto a trailer and towed by an SUV.

"Officers were sent to the scene immediately and one thief threw a metal bar at officers before the vehicles drove off," the Facebook post says.
