ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A group of thieves tried to steal an ATM but it didn’t go quite as planned.

It happened at the Valero gas station near Menaul and Tramway in January.

Surveillance video shows the crooks using straps and their car to pry open the door.

Then, they tried to do the same to take the ATM machine.

But, as you can see, the doors come busting open shattering glass and setting off the alarm.

They took off leaving the ATM behind.
