HAMTRAMCK, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities are looking for two men they say tried to steal an ATM from the lobby of a state motor vehicle office in the Detroit enclave of Hamtramck.

Police say the men crashed a stolen minivan into a Department of State branch office about 3:45 a.m. Thursday.

WDIV-TV has posted security video of the theft attempt. It shows that the men first tried to back the van into the main doors, then turned it around and crashed front-first into the building.

Police says the men fled on foot after repeatedly failing to detach the ATM. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
