A man was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday after being arrested on suspicion of blowing up and trying to steal money from an ATM in Burbank and another ATM in Los Angeles, police said.

Yakov Rozenoyer, 35, of Glendale was arrested on April 13 and was held on $500,000 bail, said Burbank police Sgt. Derek Green. On Monday, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office filed two counts of possessing and exploding a destructive/explosive device, two counts of felony vandalism, and one count of burglary against Rozenoyer, Green told NBC Los Angeles.

The Burbank crime occurred about 4:20 a.m. on April 8 at the Magnolia Car Wash, in the 900 block of West Magnolia Boulevard, Green said.

Officers went there "regarding a loud noise and possible explosion," Green said. "When police officers arrived, they found a stand-alone automated teller machine located outside of the cashier's office with significant damage," Green said. "A closer inspection of the ATM suggested that some type of explosive was used in an attempt to steal money from the machine."

Video surveillance footage was used to identify the suspect’s vehicle.
