Stolen truck, trailer, forklift used to steal ATM in Louisiana


WESTLAKE, La. (AP) — Louisiana authorities are looking for people who used a stolen forklift, truck and trailer to steal an ATM.

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office says three people may have been involved. Surveillance photos were posted on the sheriff’s office website on Friday, and deputies asked anyone who recognizes the people to call them or Westlake police.

The ATM was stolen about 1 a.m. Saturday from a bank in Westlake, and a trailer and forklift stolen from two different businesses were left in the bank’s parking lot.

Later Saturday, a burning truck was reported in Sulphur. It turned out to be the truck stolen with the trailer. The ATM was found along with it. It also had been burned. The sheriff’s office did not say whether any money was in the machine.
