California man uses blowtorch to try and break open ATM

PLACENTIA, California (WPVI) -- A man in California was caught on video using a blowtorch to break open an ATM.

Surveillance video on December 16th shows the man pulling up to a gas station in Placentia.

As he filled up, he got out of the car and went to the ATM with a blowtorch.

The blowtorch did nothing to the money dispenser.

He then tried a couple of other tools.

They also failed.

The only thing the man succeeded in doing was giving a good video image of his face to police.

He remains on the loose.
