POWDERSVILLE — Sheriff’s deputies in South Carolina have found two stolen automated teller machines, both empty.
Multiple media outlets reported the two ATMs were taken from separate banks in Anderson County early Monday.
The ATMs were found in a field in Piedmont on Tuesday afternoon along with the stolen trucks used to carry away the machines.
Deputies say the robbers left a stolen forklift at each bank parking lot in Powdersville, where they lifted the ATMs onto the trucks for the getaway.
Deputies say they think at least four people were involved in the thefts, which occurred within minutes of each other.
Chad McBride with the sheriff’s office says the thieves knew how to drive the forklifts stolen from the Powdersville High School construction site.
Still no word on how much money was taken.
