Thieves in Ireland pulled off a scoop and score, and it's all caught on camera.

Surveillance video shows one man driving a digger, or back hoe, through a security gate. The man uses the giant claw on the digger to scoop the ATM from the wall and lift it into the getaway car.

The bad guys cut out part of the roof on the car so the ATM would fit.

They drove off with the cash machine sticking out of the roof.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland called the theft just one in a series of cash machine thefts. The digger was stolen from a construction site nearby.
