- Florida men seen on video trying to break into ATM with blowtorch
- Deputies: Workers returned next morning to find ATM welded shut
Okaloosa County Sheriff's deputies say the men tried to break into a machine on the second floor of the Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island on Friday morning.
Surveillance video showed one man wearing a black nose mask and sunglasses, while the other wore a tan hat and a scarf around his face.
Deputies say the man in black tried to use a blowtorch to melt the hinges and locks on the ATM, while the other had a crow bar and served as a lookout.
But when employees arrived the next morning, they found the ATM, still closed, with the hinges welded shut.
Deputies say the people left with nothing.
Anyone with information on the break-in is asked to call Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-850-863-TIPS (8477).
