Sometimes you just have to act the part to get the job done. At least that's what seems to have happened at the Haven gastropub in the city of Orange yesterday, when a couple of guys dressed as maintenance men strolled in and helped themselves to the venue's ATM, according to ABC7. Using a dolly, the duo took the full-sized machine right before the customers' eyes. "Who are we to question them or ask them any questions? No one really paid much attention to it," said one witness.
