Hawks pick up suspect in Highflats ATM blast

2011-04-15 00:00

A MAN was arrested by members of the Port Shepstone Hawks on Wednesday in connection with an ATM bombing that took place at Highflats on February 7.

The attack, which happened at around 7.40 am that day, saw the ATM blown up at a shop.

The suspects then fled with a substantial amount of cash from the damaged machine.

Colonel Jay Naicker of the SA Police Force corporate communications division in the province, said the arrest is extremely significant in terms of investigations into ATM bombings and cash-in-transit robberies.

“This forms part of our plans to minimise such robberies in the province.

“A suspect (38) has been arrested and he is expected to appear in court soon,” he added. — WR.
