NEW YORK (AP):

He apparently really needed the cash.

The New York Post reports that a man used his car to pull an outdoor ATM off the wall at a Queens gas station, then put it in the car and drove off.

Authorities say it happened around 7 a.m. on Friday, with the man backing his car up to the machine, tying some kind of rope or chain to the ATM and then accelerating.

The machine came off the wall and the man can be seen on the station's surveillance video putting it into the car and driving off.

Onlookers told store workers.
