LEXINGTON, S.C.   — Authorities say the thieves who stole an ATM from outside a Lexington bank may be responsible for as many as four other ATM thefts around the state.

Police say the suspects stole a forklift from a nearby construction site and used it to spear the ATM early Sunday morning, loading it into the back of a pickup truck which was stolen from a nearby apartment. Investigators say it took the thieves less than a minute.

Georgetown County deputies talked to Lexington police about an ATM theft in Pawleys Island that used stolen construction equipment and a stolen pickup. Similar thefts have been reported in Anderson, Greenville and Clemson.

Lexington police say they don't have any suspects in the theft.

I've never understood why

I've never understood why ATMs don't have GPS??? Rental car's do! If you cross a state line in a rental car (without permission) they charge you more money. And they know everywhere you've been.

Yeh, good idea! Also could

Yeh, good idea! Also could have constantly-running cameras, that have a video feed back to law enforcement or loss-prevention at the bank at least.
