Stolen backhoe used in attempted ATM burglary

PRINCE GEORGE COUNTY, Maryland (KTRK) -- Give this guy an "E" for effort.

Police in Maryland are asking for the public's help in tracking down a suspect who tried to break into an ATM using a stolen backhoe.

It happened on the morning of June 1 and it was all caught on surveillance cameras.

Police said the backhoe was stolen, then driven about five miles to the bank.

The suspect didn't make off with any money, but it caused about $10,000 worth of damage to the ATM.

Police said they believe this is the same man who pulled off an ATM theft in 2016 when he and two others broke into a tobacco shop.
