There are criminal masterminds, and there are these guys . . .

Police in Oregon are looking for two guys who crashed their van into a convenience store early Tuesday morning.  They wanted to steal an ATM, and they backed the van into the building to get access to it.

They loaded the ATM into their van . . . and pulled over in another parking lot where they apparently tried to BLOW UP the ATM to get the loot.

Security cameras caught their van . . . with a RAGING FIRE in the back.  So yes, they were trying to blow it up INSIDE the back of the van.  (???)

It’s unclear what happened after that . . . but since the police are still looking for them, they must have gotten away.  The cops didn’t say if they think the guys still have the van and / or the ATM.
