Police say the unknown suspects rammed the front of the bank, pulled the ATM off its moorings, and dragged it down the street a short distance before loading it onto what is believed to be a flat bed trailer or truck.
The ATM held an undisclosed sum of money.
Shortly after the bank alarm call, Airdrie Rural RCMP responded to a recovered stolen truck, located on East Lake Road in Airdrie. The large Kenworth hauling truck was stolen from Crossfield sometime during the evening of December 4.
Damage to the truck and evidence found in the trunk are causing police to believe it was used in the Acme ATM theft.
Calgary Forensic Identification Services was called out to process both the truck and scene for evidence.
