WORCESTER (CBS) — The Worcester Fire Department was able to retrieve an unusual item from the shallow waters of Lake Quinsigamond. Using a cable and a tow truck, an ATM was pulled from the lake Sunday.

Police believe the machine, which has already been broken to pieces and emptied, was stolen from Greendale’s Pub.
