Wakaw RCMP say thieves who stole an ATM dragged it out of town behind a truck after failing to get it into the back of the vehicle.
Police say witnesses in St. Louis watched early on Sunday as the suspects backed a white Dodge truck up to a credit union and dragged the machine down the street.
The truck stopped and the suspects tried to load the ATM into the back of the truck, but couldn’t do it, so they drove away with the machine still dragging behind.
Police say at that point, the suspects were joined by a second truck and were last seen heading east on Highway 25 towards Birch Hills, Sask.
St. Louis is about 125 kilometres northeast of Saskatoon.
Earlier this year, Mounties asked for help solving nearly a dozen ATM thefts in rural Saskatchewan, and ATM thefts have become so rampant in Alberta that the RCMP have dedicated a team of officers to investigate them.
RCMP say they’re reviewing surveillance video as part of their investigation into Sunday’s case.
