FORT MILL, SC (WBTV) -

Investigators in York County are looking for the person who used a fork lift to steal an ATM machine on Wednesday.

The incident was reported at the TD Bank on the 100 block of Stone Village Drive in Fort Mill, according to the report from the York County Sheriff's Office.

When deputies arrived to the bank they noticed the drive thru ATM machine was missing and a large orange fork lift was still running near where the ATM use to be.

The fork truck's access panel under the steering wheel had been tampered with and hot-wired, according to the report.

The landscaping in the area had also been damaged where the fork truck ran over it.

Video from security cameras at the bank shows that someone had used the fork truck to break the ATM loose from its foundation and load it into the bed of the pick-up truck, according to the report.

Once it was loaded into the truck, the suspect, dressed in all dark clothing, got off the fork lift and jumped into the pick-up truck.

Detectives say the truck is a 1997 C1500 Chevrolet, dark blue in color with chrome wheels, according to the report.

Security cameras last recorded the truck turning right from Stone Village Drive onto Highway 160.

The stolen ATM is valued at $300,000 with another $20,000 in U.S. cash inside of it, according to the report.

No arrest has been in the case.
