LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
Las Vegas Metro detectives are hoping someone will recognize the men captured on surveillance video, trying to haul an ATM out of a business with a truck.
Police said the attempted robbery occurred on Aug. 11 on Sahara Avenue, near Buffalo Drive.
The video shows the men smashing the glass out of the front door, entering the business, tying a strap around the ATM and trying to pull it out.
It appears they failed.
The first suspect is described as between 20 and 30 years old, 5'10" tall and 170 pounds.
The second suspect is between 25 and 40 years old, 5'10" tall and approximately 180 pounds.
Police said the driver remained in the vehicle during the attempted robbery and was not captured on surveillance video.
Police believe the bandits are using a red, older model pickup truck converted into a tow truck as well as a white pickup truck.
Police believe the crew may be responsible for as many as four other, similar incidents.
Anyone with information is urged to call Metro's Southeast Area Command Property Crimes Section at 702-828-8242 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555. You may also leave information online at www.crimestoppersofnv.com.
