An ATM was the victim of a spectacular robbery, during the night from Wednesday to Thursday in the Ancely district, in Toulouse. A construction truck was used to ram into the post office building, before being set on fire and abandoned.
The images are impressive: we see a huge construction truck, equipped with a concrete pump, ignite at the level of the front cabin. A plume of flames rises several meters high, while firefighters try to spread it using fire hoses. This is the astonishing spectacle that is offered to residents of Ancely, in the night from Wednesday to Thursday, around 4 am.

Awakened by loud bangs, several of them rushed to their balconies to understand what was going on in their usually rather peaceful neighborhood. “We heard several loud explosion noises, and smelled a strong smell of burning plastic, testifies Violeta, a local resident. When the firefighters arrived, it was impressive, they extinguished everything in 15 minutes, not even. had big flames. We were wondering if it was going to break our windows. It’s quite worrying, we didn’t expect that at all here.”
The post office cash dispenser, at the foot of his building, was completely smashed by the truck, which hit it in reverse in order to steal the money it contained. The driver then set fire to the vehicle before abandoning it on the spot and fleeing with the help of accomplices.
