HOUSTON (FOX 26)
No one was hurt or threatened after two men wearing masks to break open an automated teller machine, including a customer who calmly walked away from an 8-liner machine as the crime took place.
The two men entered the Power Mart on Ella Boulevard near Rankin road in northeast Houston before 4 a.m. Friday and the entire incident was captured on surveillance video.
As the burglars used crowbars to pry open the ATM, a customer was playing on one of the gaming machines and proceeded to gradually walk away from it during the attempted theft.
The burglars were able to remove the cash box, which contained around $10,000, according to the store manager.
