Two Alberta men are facing charges after they allegedly broke into a bank and stole an ATM.

In a statement, Central Alberta District RCMP said it received reports of a break and enter at the Daysland Alberta Treasury Branch Bank in the early hours of the morning on August 31.

When police arrived, the suspects had already left.

An investigation at the scene found the suspects used a "recently stolen Zoom Boom piece of machinery" to get into the bank where they stole an ATM and caused a lot of damage, police added.

Two suspects were identified by the police and arrested following an investigation and the use of an RCMP helicopter.

"Significant amounts" of money, parts of the ATM, and other stolen items were recovered.

He was also charged with fraudulent concealment, possessing break and enter tools, three counts of failing to comply with release conditions, obstruction, careless use of ammunition, possession of a controlled substance and dangerous driving
