Crooks Blow Up ATMs in Crimes Leaving Chileans Stuck in Line

Updated on

Chilean thieves have a new way of stealing cash from ATMs: they blow them up.

The method is simple. Use a hose to inject propane into the machine while being careful to seal all cracks and vents with duct tape, then light the fuel with a spark. The top of the machine explodes, leaving the cash tray almost intact.
