Chunky ninja bandit

Police in West Palm Beach, Florida are on the trail of a would-be ATM thief dressed as a ninja.

Security cameras were rolling when the man, described by police as "heavy set with a visible pot belly", tried to steal cash from the machines.

His ill-fitting disguise revealed his eyes, but no other physical features.

Police say the man didn't succeed in his attempts, and are asking anyone with information to call them.
