An unlucky thief shattered an ATM in Russia in broad daylight but only got away with a tray of counterfeit bills.

Surveillance video shows the man struggling to tear open the machine, ripping out a part of it, then walking away with a tray of what he thought was real money. But in reality, it was fake.

Russia's Interior Ministry said the thief was later arrested, and is facing charges of attempted crime and theft.
