Authorities are searching for two men, both dressed in Deadpool costumes, who attempted to steal an ATM last Thursday in Cocoa, Florida. 

According to the Brevard County Sheriff's Office, officers responded to a call at 2:38 a.m. at a gas station located at 4580 Grissom Parkway after the alarm went off. Surveillance video shows two men wearing full zip-up Deadpool hoodies breaking the front door glass and removing the ATM found in the back of the building. 

The men loaded the ATM into the back of a 1999 Ford E-250 van, which was reported stolen from a nearby dealership. However, deputies say the men were unable to leave the parking lot in the van, so they abandoned the vehicle (and the ATM). The two men were later caught on video in the area getting picked up by a white Chevy Tahoe. 

During the robbery, one suspect unzipped his hood, causing it to fall from his head. Deputies are now looking to the community to help identify the man and his partner. 

Anyone with information about the suspects or similar crimes in the area should contact agent Patrick Ferguson at or 321-617-7306, call Crimeline at 1-800-432-TIPS or direct message the Brevard County Sheriff's Office Facebook.
