JOHANNESBURG – One man has been arrested and more than R56,000 was recovered
by police after an ATM was bombed in Orlando in Soweto on Wednesday morning.
Captain Phillemon Khorombi said police, stationed near the railway line in
Orlando, heard a blast around 1.10am. When they arrived on the scene of the
ATM bombing, six men opened fire on them. Police returned fire. One man
surrendered to police while the other five managed to flee. The arrested man
was found in possession of a firearm which had been reported stolen from the
Linden police station. Khorombi said the Standard Bank ATM had been badly
damaged and money was lying on the floor. “About R56,760 was found on the
scene. We're not sure how much (money) was taken and some was also damaged
by the explosion,” Khorombi said. – Sapa.
