Trying to steal an ATM?

Courtesy of

POMONA, Calif. — A man who authorities say tried to steal a 1,500-pound bank ATM machine was captured after his prosthetic leg fell off during the getaway.

Gregory Daniels, 48, was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of burglary for the attempted heist from Pomona Ranch Market, police said.

Daniels and another man drove up to the market about 3 a.m., smashed a window, wrapped a chain around the cash machine and used their pickup truck to rip it from the floor, authorities said. After loading it into the truck, the pair drove off.

Officers chased the truck into a residential neighborhood, where the men drove into a dead-end street. Daniels' alleged accomplice fled, but police said Daniels was not able to escape.

"Daniels was on the ground near the vehicle in an attempt to flee from officers," Sgt. E. Vazquez said. "However, he was unsuccessful, as his prosthetic leg fell off."

The ATM and its cash were recovered. The assistant manager of the Pomona Ranch Market, Tom Zvoda, said he did not know how much money was inside.

I couldn't make this up! Back in my casino days...you ALWAYS HOPE that when YOU'RE the shift manager that nothing bad goes down.

Well...someone always has to be #2 to the shift manager when the real one has days off...

I used to have that 2 day a week manager job. After my shift...the next day when the real shift manager came back...

Diabold is a huge ATM company in the states... Some guys came in to our casino with Diabold coveralls on, had an invoice for ATM repair...signed in with the shift manager (not me thank goodness), and took a hand dolly, quietly unplugged the ATM, and rolled it out the door. NOTHING was REALLY wrong with it, but not knowing that...the shift manager let a perfectally full ATM machine roll right out the Mississippi casino door!!!

It happens...
