“Boulder police Friday released photos of the man who used a rental truck to help dislodge the automated teller machine at the Chase Bank, 6300 Gunpark Drive, about 2 a.m. Wednesday.
 
The pictures show that the man carefully backed up a stolen rental truck to the ATM and fastened a chain to the machine.
 
The ATM was dragged about 15 to 20 feet and upended. The would-be thief, possibly frightened by an alarm, took no money from the machine

Sometimes you have to root for the bad guy…
 
I’m outraged at the excessive fees banks charge non-customers for using an ATM. I’m disappointed that the robber failed to drive away with the ATM.
 
I hope the the robber isn’t caught by the police, after all banks get away with murder charging their customers excessive penalties if one of their accounts is overdrawn by as little as one cent.
 
If you recognize the dude from the photo released by the police, be a Good Samaritan and don’t turn him in.
