Another Case of Philadelphia’s Dumbest Crooks

I heard about this escapade on the radio and had to find it on YouTube. It happened in the early morning of January 15th, 2018, on the 5200 block of Rising Sun Avenue. Unfortunately the video does not capture the part where, as the van goes up Rising Sun Avenue, the ATM is lost and lands in the middle of the street.
