Thieves use backhoe to break into bank

NEW YORK – New York City police are looking for thieves who used a backhoe to ram a wall and an ATM machine at a bank.

Police say the suspects left the backhoe running when they fled the Chase Bank branch in the Maspeth section of Queens early Friday. The machine was reported missing from a nearby construction site. Police say it is unclear if any money was taken.

Detectives say this is part of a pattern of several smash-and-grab thefts. The suspects use tools, vehicles or construction equipment to break into ATMs.

Most thefts occur in the early morning hours. They’re mostly in Brooklyn and Queens.
