NAKHON SI THAMMARAT, THAILAND - Thieves stole an ATM machine in the southern province of Nakhon Si Thammarat and took it to a rubber plantation but failed to open it.

Police said villagers in Ron Phibul district alerted them at 5.30am last Friday when they saw four or five men on motorcycles and pulling a handcart with an object looking like an ATM machine.

Police investigated and found that an ATM machine of the Bank for Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives in the district disappeared.

Police later found the ATM machine inside a rubber plantation and the thieves also took away its hard drive of the box for recording feed from its attached security camera.

It took ten police officers to carry the machine to a police truck and took it to the district police station. - THE NATION/ASIA NEWS NETWORK
