This is seriously fuckin funny, this is on par with robbing some place and leaving your ID behind! It’s true what they say, CRIME DOESN’T PAY.
SANTA FE SPRINGS — Four people are in custody, accused of breaking into a check-cashing business in Santa Fe Springs and stealing money from an ATM machine.
The break-in occurred at the Cash N More check-cashing business at 10805 Orr and Day Road in Santa Fe Springs about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, said Sgt. Rob Hanson of the Whittier Police Department, which patrols Santa Fe Springs.
The thieves used crow bars to break the front window and get inside. A vehicle with a chain attached to it pulled the ATM outside.
The suspects took apart the machine to get the cash box, which ironically only had $40 in it.
“There’s usually a lot more cash in there, it’s just one of the off-days and forty dollars was all that was in there,” owner Frank Gonzalez, Jr told KTLA.
After the burglary, the four led Whittier police and California Highway Patrol officers on a chase into South Los Angeles, where, with the assistance of Los Angeles police officers, they were arrested.
Officers also recovered the cash box and the two getaway vehicles, according to Los Angeles and Whittier police.
Investigators believe the suspects may be linked to a series of other ATM break-ins.
The owners are working to repair the damage to their store.
