Robbers unsuccessfully steal from Bitcoin ATM in England

A group of people tried to rob a Bitcoin ATM in England without success.

Here’s probably (another) prove that Bitcoin is a lot safer than fiat. A group of people decided to rob a Bitcoin ATM in Birmingham, UK on July 18th.

According to the security footage, the 3 men were able to gain access to the building where the ATM is located and tried to invade the machine.

However, the effort didn’t end up successfully as the loud alarm made them panic and decided to exit the scene with their waiting car.

The ATM operator, Shitcoins Club’s CEO, Adam Gramowski clarified that the thieves were not able to steal any cash from the machine. He’s pretty certain that they were after the cash than the crypto as they were seen to drag it behind the car.

Hypothetically speaking, even though they were after the crypto, he confirmed confidently that they would not succeed as he said, “There are no BTC [Bitcoin] in the machine, they are being sent directly from our server.”

Local police officer confirmed the incident and said that the investigation to the attack is currently ongoing, as reported by Stmarket.
