SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Someone made a withdrawal from a Shreveport credit union.

Problem is, it was done before business hours. 

And instead of currency, the thief or thieves made off with an automated teller machine.

Police were alerted to a silent alarm at 4:42 a.m. Thursday at Shreveport Federal Credit Union.

Officers arrived at the financial institution in the 8500 block of Fern Avenue to find the ATM was missing, police Cpl. Angie Willhite said.

The theft occurred at a time when Shreveport Federal customers are being transitioned to Red River Federal Credit Union.

In fact, Red River Federal has signs posted advising Shreveport Federal members to make their first-of-the-month cash withdrawals Thursday.

"In preparation for our system core merger all electronic deposits for June 1-3 will be posted early on May 31st," the sign reads. 

The signs also advise customers that Shreveport Federal ATM and debit cards are being terminated Thursday and that they are to begin using their Red River Federal ATM and debit cards.

Most all locations in Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas and Mississippi will be closed Saturday.

The exceptions are the express branches on Walton Drive and Texas Boulevard and in Central Mall in Texarkana.

Those locations will conduct business Saturday. But they will not open until 1 p.m.
