East London - Four men were arrested in Butterworth, Eastern Cape, on Saturday after they were found with a device allegedly used to obtain ATM card details, police said.

Captain Jackson Manatha said police were patrolling around the town when they noticed the men moving between different automated teller machines.

"The suspects were stopped in their car and were searched individually," Manatha said.

"A device and a camera which are believed to be used by the suspects in getting the particulars of bank cards of unsuspecting bank clients were found with the suspects in their car."

The men, aged between 22 and 27, are scheduled to appear at the Butterworth Magistrate's Court on Monday.

    As far as I know by now all ATM's have cameras installed in them, why can't they ever scan the footage on a regular basis for scrupulant activity! These thugs faces can also be caught on camera and arrested, named and shamed. One would think that after knowing of such incidents being the norm already that the latest technology would be in place not only to catch fraudsters like these but also to catch ATM bombers! It is not technology that requires upgrading, it is the IT guys that need upgrading! The technology is there - use it!!!!
