accreditation

CCTV footage has been published of suspects bombing ATMs at the Midwater Centre in Middelburg, Mpumalanga earlier this month, and then firing shots at an unsuspecting driver before escaping. Watch. 

According to the Middelburg Obsever, one of the suspects is female, or is a man dressed as a woman. 

After planting explosives, the bombs go off and the perpetrators return to retrieve the cash. As the suspects prepare to escape, a white bakkie can be seen approaching in the distance. One of the suspects starts firing shots at the bakkie before the gun gets jammed.
