Durban - ATM bombers struck in Amanzimtoti in the early hours of Monday morning, making off with nearly R300 000 in cash.

It is understood that a gang of men held security guards at gunpoint before detonating explosive charges which had been carefully laid on the ATMS.

Police sources confirmed that the gang had escaped with R290 000.

Police spokesperson Major Thulani Zwane said they were investigating.

“It is alleged in the early hours of today [Monday], eight unidentified suspects arrived at the mall in two vehicles and held up the security guards with rifles,” he said.

“The suspects then broke into the building and used explosives to blow up two ATMs.

“The suspects then removed an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing the scene in their getaway vehicles. No arrests or recoveries have been made and our investigations are continuing,” he said.
