TOWNSVILLE, AUSTRALIA -- Police in Australia are looking for a not-so-smooth criminal.

They released surveillance video of the man in action.  As you'll see, he got the smash right, but not the grab.

He breaks into a gas station and attaches a chain around an ATM.  He doesn't realize the chain has separated when he tries to pull the ATM with his truck.  Then he drives back for a second attempt, but stops too far away to reconnect the chain.

Thinking better of a third attempt, he finally just drives off.
