Kicker – Monkeying around an ATM


NICK EICHER, HOST: Police in India got a call to look into the break-in of an ATM recently.

Delhi police officers arrived at the kiosk to find the cash machine partially disassembled. 

It appeared someone ripped the front panel off the machine, leaving wires and circuitry exposed—but not far enough to grab cash. 

Police thought perhaps the thief got spooked and ran. 

But then they had a look at the surveillance video. 

It was not a crook with a crowbar, it was a monkey with his bare hands. And he did get inside and had a look around before leaving the scene. 

He was either just the Curious George type or maybe he just forgot his pin number.
