Police in Arkansas have released a video of a forklift truck approaching a bank and ripping out its ATM machine.

In the early hours of the morning on August 16, CCTV captured a huge CAT forklift truck removing a cash machine from its foundation in front of the First Service Bank.

The ATM was then loaded onto a truck and driven away. Conway Police were called later in the morning as an employee arrived at work and saw the damage to the property and the missing machine.

The Conway Police Department needs your help identifying the person/persons responsible for stealing an ATM from First Service Bank around 3:00 Wednesday morning. The suspects cannot be seen but if you recognize the truck or you were in the area when this happened or have some information you want to share on this case, please call Detective Williams at 450-6130.
