That'll teach those guys to be industrious!
At 5:45 a.m. in the town of Sungai Petani, Malaysia, concerned citizens alerted local police to an apparent ATM theft in progress at a bank branch.
It appeared that two men were about to abscond with one of the vestibule ATMs, according to a report by New Straits Times.
Officers rushed to the pre-dawn scene and, sure enough, found two men at the ATMs and a truck parked nearby.
The suspects produced paperwork backing up their claim that they were ATM technicians swapping out machines at the branch — they had just gotten to work earlier than expected.
When the bank opened three hours later, police were finally able to confirm the men's story and let them go finish the job.
