Caught on Camera: Suspect fails miserably at stealing an ATM

Surveillance video shows an attempted theft that quickly turned amusing in Australia.

The unidentified man in the footage was caught on camera trying to steal an ATM from a Queensland convenience store. The suspect smashed through the door's glass, and then connected a chain from his truck to the ATM with the apparent intention of pulling the ATM out of the store.

There was just one problem: the chain got caught on a rotating sunglasses display and broke.

The attempted thief drove away only to realize that the ATM wasn't connected, and he circled back to see what the problem was. After he realized the mishap, he drove off for a second time.
