They arrived to find an abandoned backhoe still in front of the bank and a heavily damaged ATM machine.

Despite the heavy equipment, the thieves could not remove the money machine.

1. Thieves tried a similar tactic in Bella Vista, Arkansas
They were able to remove the ATM machine with a front-end loader, but they couldn't get into the machine itself so they abandoned it

2. Tweakers, perhaps?
Borrowed a backhoe to get money to put more stuff in their bodies. Didn't work, so they wandered off, muttering to themselves...
