The FBI has released dramatic video of an armed robbery in Philadelphia in a bid to help catch the perpetrators who fled the scene with bags of cash. 

The brazen heist took place at 10am last Thursday in the bustling University City neighborhood, and was captured by several surveillance cameras set up in the area. 

The heart-stopping footage, which has been shared to YouTube, begins with an armored Garda truck pulling up on Market Street to deposit cash into an ATM. 

Shortly after, two bandits can be seen pulling up behind the truck in a dark red SUV before they emerge from the vehicle and make their way to the cash machine. 

The men - clad in black hoodies and ski masks - then storm towards two Garda guards who are loading up the ATM. 

One of the thieves brandishes a large assault rifle, while the second suspect holds a handgun.

Idiots...the FBI will catch them and lock them up for years. They thought switching vehicles would help them, but they forgot about video cameras...it’s over...they should have looked for better job if they wanted more money, this is America.
