Police in Conway, Arkansas are on the hunt for thieves who used a forklift to steal an ATM.

The authorities have released video of the robbery in which thieves crashed a CAT forklift into the drive-through portion of a bank and made away with an ATM.

Police are asking the public to help identify the forklift used in the raid on the First Service Bank.

But a warning for anyone who thinks this might be a good idea for them: More and more ATMs have GPS tracking. So even if you make away with the machine, you might have the police on your tail a lot sooner than you'd like.
