Robbers drag out ATM using 4WD

KULAIJAYA - Robbers dragged an ATM out of a bank here using a black four-wheel drive vehicle and carted it away in a white MPV.

The incident took place at around 2.30am yesterday and was believed to involve five suspects.

CCTV footage at the scene showed the machine was dragged out of the premises to the corridor.

Three suspects wearing white gloves were seen tying the machine with a belt and yanking it out of its place before the vehicle pulled it out of the premises.

Two of them then loaded the machine onto a white MPV that was waiting outside.

Kulaijaya OCPD Supt Zulkefly Yahya said the amount of money in the ATM has yet to be determined.

He added that eight fingerprints were obtained from the scene and a black vest that was left behind by the suspects was taken for a DNA test.

"We received a call from an eyewitness who said he heard a loud boom near the scene and contacted the police at around 3am," he said.

He added that road blocks have been carried out at three locations to search for the suspected vehicles.

Supt Zulkefly urged those with information to head to the nearest police station or call the police hotline at 07-221 2999.
