Bixby Police told KOKI that a forklift was used to tear the ATM out of the ground at the Tulsa Teachers Credit Union Friday morning.

The ATM with money inside was loaded into a vehicle and taken from the crime scene, police told KOKI.

Photos of the scene taken by KOKI photographer Brandon Hubbard show the remains of the bank equipment dangling from a forklift outside the credit union. Another photo shows a line of police cars as investigators looked for evidence.

Police told KOKI that the forklift was rented, but that it was too early to say whether it was rented legally.

At this point, investigators are looking at surveillance video, and told KOKI they don’t yet know how many people were involved in the heist.
