SUMMERVILLE, S.C. — Summerville police are investigating the theft of an ATM from a credit union.

Police say the thieves used a stolen front-end loader to move the ATM off its foundation and into a pickup truck early Monday.

Police say it is similar to other ATM thefts across the state in recent months but they don’t know if Monday’s heist is related to the others.

Capt. Jon Rogers said an alarm sounded shortly before 4 a.m. Officers found a front-end loader that had been stolen from a nearby construction site.

Investigators have not determined how much money was in the machine.

No arrests have been made.
