A movie-plot like heist played out Sunday morning in St Louis.

An Automated Teller Machine was stolen from the Affinity Credit Union, around 5:20a.m.

Local neighbours watched the whole thing unfold.

One man told paNOW he heard a loud crash then when she went outside to see what was going on, she saw three men in a white Dodge truck backed up to the front door of the bank.

The men smashed the front door of the bank and proceeded to attach a yellow tow rope to the ATM.

"I see the truck take a run at it and the rope broke, so they had to do it again," he said.

The second attempt was successful and the truck dragged the ATM down the street, towards the Birch Hills highway.

Another neighbour told paNOW the men stopped the truck several times and attempted to lift the ATM into the back of the truck, but the machine was too heavy.

A second pick up truck was also seen arriving, helping to assist.  Both trucks were last seen heading east on highway 25 toward Birch Hills.

The RCMP investigation continues.

Anyone with any information is encouraged to contact the Wakaw RCMP or their your local Crime Stoppers tip line.
