So much for cash on the go for a pair of would-be thieves.
They tried stealing ATMs.
The first attempt was reported at approximately 3: 30 a.m. on Sept. 9. In this instance, two suspect males secured their vehicle to a gate at the Shell Station near 40th Avenue and 208th Street.
The gate was pulled from the frame, and one of the two suspects threw a rock through the front door, shattering the glass, Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks reported.
"The two males attempted to take the ATM machine with a dolly; however they were not successful and left empty handed," she said.
The vehicle used appeared to be a blue Dodge Dakota, which may or may not have been stolen.
Not to be deterred, they found another target.
A short time later, police attended the SuperSave Gas Station at 24th Avenue and 200th Street where a red pick-up truck had smashed through the front of the business.
Once again, two males ripped the security gate off the front of the business.
"One of the males attached a garden hose between the ATM and the truck and attempted to detach the ATM from the floor," she said. "The hose snapped. The truck was then driven through the front of the business where it became stuck."
The culprits fled on foot, again empty handed.
The truck used in the second robbery had been stolen in Langley earlier that morning or the night prior.
Lower Mainland Police Dog Service was brought in but was unable to establish a track.
The police are interested in hearing from anyone with information about these incidents.
