Life a ‘drag’ for thieves

The Canadian Press

ST. LOUIS, Sask.—The RCMP has found an automated teller machine that thieves literally dragged out of a Saskatchewan community after they were unable to lift it into the back of a stolen pickup truck.
Mounties said the ATM that was taken from a credit union in St. Louis early Sunday morning was found later that day in some bush, about 150 km northeast of Saskatoon.
Some money had been removed from the machine, which witnesses said was too heavy for the thieves to handle after it was yanked from the building using a white Dodge pickup truck and a rope.
Witnesses also noted the ATM eventually was hauled out of town behind the truck, which was joined by a second pickup.
No arrests have been made.
