Guilty plea in ATM break-in

By Washington Post editors

Federal prosecutors said a Capitol Heights man has pleaded guilty to attempting to cut open an ATM safe, WJLA reported.

Earl Blake, 53, will be sentenced Aug. 12.

Blake and another man drove to the SunTrust Bank in Temple Hills on June 9. The other man, a co-defendant in the case, gave Blake tools, including an electric grinder and saw, and instructed Blake on how to cut open the ATM safe.

The bank's fire alarm went off and Prince George's firefighters responded; Blake was arrested near the bank.

Let's see. Cut open an ATM machine that probably has a camera taking your picture with a tool that will set off the banks fire alarm and then stay around when the fire department comes.

Possible legal defense: mental defect
