OAKDALE, La. (KPLC) - Four people are in custody in the attempted burglary of an ATM at Sabine State Bank in Oakdale, authorities say.

Grant Willis, an investigator with Oakdale police, said a search in the area of E. Whatley Road near the federal prison for a fifth possible suspect has been called off.

Authorities said the suspects ran into the woods following the incident. The manhunt lasted most of the morning.

A witness who says she lives next to the bank, says she saw a brown, four-door Chevrolet pickup truck with an ATM attached to the front of it wrecked into the fence at the bank.

She said the doors were open, the flashers were on and the airbags were blown.
