Next time bring a longer chain

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - August 3, 2010

Investigators say the man tried to steal a cash machine from a Walgreens.

The crook apparently planned to wrap a chain around the ATM and drag it out with his truck.

But the chain wasn't long enough.

Police Lt. Steve Kenney tells a local radio station, surveillance video shows a man breaking glass and bringing the chain into the store.

An alarm sounded.

But the suspect left without taking anything by the time officers arrived.
