Two men broke into the ASI Federal Credit Union at 4137 South Carrollton Avenue on Monday and tried unsuccessfully to make off with an ATM. The effort was caught on surveillance video, and New Orleans police are asking for help identifying the would-be burglars.
Around 5 a.m., the men pried open the front doors of the business and attempted to steal the ATM, according to a news release from the New Orleans Police Department. When they were unable to remove the machine, video surveillance captured the men fleeing the area in a dark-colored SUV.
Third District Detective Roger Caillouet is in charge of the investigation and can be reached at 504-658-6030.
