A 22-year-old man was arrested at his girlfriend’s Mill Basin home for allegedly trying to pillage an automatic teller machine in Sheepshead Bay, and then cops arrested his girlfriend — and her mother — after they allegedly shoved officers during the raid.

Investigators began perusing surveillance footage at the Kings Highway TD Bank between Lake Street and McDonald Avenue after employees came to work on Sept. 2 and found their outdoor automatic teller machine had suffered some $1,500 in damage.

The footage allegedly showed Nicholas Giampaolo, along with an accomplice acting as a lookout, attempting — and failing — to pry open the automatic teller machine with a crowbar 5:10 am, according to court documents.

The automatic teller machine contained approximately $50,000.

Aaron Gazit, Giampaolo’s alleged lookout, later spilled the beans to investigators, saying he drove the other man to a location to procure a “wrench,” before going to the bank, and eventually leaving together, cops said.

But when cops tracked down Giampaolo at his girlfriend’s house, she and her mother allegedly shoved an officer, and were arrested, according to a spokesman for District Attorney Charles Hynes.
