An unusual crime
From Fox 5:
Police in Queens were investigating an unusual bank robbery on Friday morning.
Someone used a backhoe to break into a Chase bank on 48th Street in the Maspeth section of the borough.
It apparently took place at about 3 a.m. while the bank was closed.
Video from SkyFoxHD showed a wall and door smashed in the front of the building. The backhoe was still sitting in front of the building.
Police say the thief broke in through the ATM vestibule. The ATM was laying in front of the building after the break-in.
Police were still on the scene in the 8 a.m. hour. It was unclear if any money was stolen in the break-in.
