SEFFNER, Fla. (AP) — Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputies arrested two men they say used a front-end loader to driver through an ATM at a Bank of America location and steal the machine with cash and deposits inside.

Authorities say the men loaded the ATM onto a dump truck early Sunday and took it to a site near Tampa. They abandoned the dump truck and went back to try to break open the ATM.

Late in the afternoon deputies got a tip about the stolen ATM. When they arrived at the scene, the men were still trying to break in.

Deputies arrested 37-year-old Robert L. Suggs and 27-year-old David E. Hall on numerous charges.

Authorities say the men caused $1,000 in damage to the machine.
