Officers from the Albuquerque Police Department responded to the scene just after 1 a.m. APD reports officers were able to retrieve a forklift used to steal the ATM, the ATM itself, and also recovered $13,000 in loose cash that was scattered on the street.

Police state that the forklift was stolen from a subcontractor at Costco. APD is working with the FBI on the case since over $100,000 in damage was done to the bank.

Nusenda Credit Union says the South Eubank branch is temporarily closed, but nearby Juan Tabo, Uptown, and University branches are open.
