In a press release on Monday, the RCMP said they received a report of an ongoing break-in at a bank in Warburg, about 100 km southwest of Edmonton, shortly before 3 a.m. Sunday.

Breton and Thorsby RCMP responded to the call and found that although the suspects had fled with an undisclosed sum of money, the building had been badly damaged by the heavy equipment used to break through the wall.

The investigation led police to the site of a nearby business, the RCMP added, where suspects broke into the building and stole a front loader from the scene.

RCMP said suspects fled in a reported stolen pickup truck Sunday around 8:30 a.m. in Warburg, and describe it as a black 2007 Ford F350 double-styled with the Alberta license plate VBK19.
