SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police detained two people in connection with the Wednesday morning theft of an ATM from a Stone Oak bank.

According to a preliminary police report, the two people in custody were in a separate vehicle following a U-Haul truck that police believe was used in the theft.

They said the bank's security staff had notified them after seeing the crime being committed by way of surveillance cameras.

When police arrived, the machine and the thieves were gone.  

Police spotted the U-Haul truck a short time later traveling east on Loop 1604.
