(Newser) – Thieves in Germany attempted to bust open a cash machine last night … but the resulting explosion ended up destroying the entire bank instead, der Spiegel reports. The blast in the small town of Nottuln-Darup sent debris flying as far as 260 feet. "Damage to the building is likely to be worth several hundred thousands of euros," says a police spokesperson, but no one was injured. Police are still looking for the robbers, and aren't even sure how much money they made off with—it was hard to even locate the cash machine in the rubble.
