Video shows thieves using a huge forklift to steal an ATM

After seeing a few movies and TV shows about robbing banks, any reasonable person knows there's a lot that goes into it -- months of planning, disabling security cameras and certainly a getaway car. 

But what if there was an easier way? As in, all you'd really have to do is steal the giant box with money in it.

That's exactly what happened in Arkansas.

Arriving in a giant forklift, thieves yanked a drive-thru ATM out of the ground in the middle of the night.

Police think the person or persons behind the heist at First Service Bank work in the construction industry.

As you can see from the video, they made off with the whole enchilada, but it's unclear how much money they drove away with. 

The Conway Police Department is asking anyone with information to come forward.

Problem is, the thieves avoided showing their faces on candid camera.

If you're thinking of copy-catting, think again. According to Gizmodo, lots of ATMs have GPS tracking these days so police might be zeroing in on you before you can spend the money or even crack the thing open.

It's surprising police haven't caught the thieves yet, considering the getaway car was no Ferrari, but a forklift!
