Can someone rob an ATM by shooting it? Apparently not.
Last Sunday morning a customer walked up to the ATM at the BB&T bank in the 8600 block of Richmond Highway in Alexandria and found pieces of it scattered on the ground. When Fairfax County police checked the machine’s surveillance camera they found that someone had fired a shotgun at it around 4:45 that morning. You can actually see the blast from the muzzle in the picture.
Police say the would-be ATM robber got no money.
