    Sadly there is no video, however you can't have everything, so you'll just have to imagine it happening :)

    Some of the free-standing cash machines, of the type you find in small local shops and garages (the ones in the UK that usually charge you 1 to use) are pretty small. Slightly taller than a washing machine and not as wide.

    Unless they're weighted inside (I dunno) and were they not bolted firmly to the floor, they look like something that a guy who could carry a washing machine on his own could pick up and hump a short distance to a getaway car/truck...

    Someone has to create a video re-enactment of this, including the rascal remark by the russian police
