Robbers yesterday in Mainz, Germany attempted to blow up an ATM to get the cash inside, but ended up destroying the whole bank.

They apparently used more explosives than necessary, reducing the building in the small German town of Coesfeld to rubble and waking some local residents.

German police told NBC News Tuesday that they suspect the incident was part of a nationwide series of robberies in which the thieves put an explosive gas mixture into ATMs and ignite it.

According to a police report, the robbers were able to get a low four-figure sum of cash out of the destroyed ATM. The robbers remained on the run Tuesday.
