Crime really doesn't pay, especially for some bank crooks in Everett, Washington.  Tuesday morning police posted pictures of the Coastal Community Bank ATM on their Twitter feed, looking for the public's help for those responsible for attempting to rob it of its cash.  Attempted is the key word as the thieves thought using a blow torch to open the locked machine would be the easy way to score some cash. Unfortunately their plan didn't take into account that paper money is flammable as the heat and flames from the torch ignited all the cash inside.  Thieves left nothing for the bank but a burnt ATM machine with the ashes of cash inside. Detectives are now investigating and collecting surveillance footage from the bank.
