Police doing everything in their power to bring ATM bombers to book

 The South African Banking Risk Information Centre on Monday said police were doing everything in their power to bring ATM bombers to book. In recent weeks three cash machines were bombed in Blue Downs, Mitchells Plain and Southfield and a fourth was damaged at a Philippi shopping centre during the early hours of Sunday morning.

 No arrests have been made.

 Several cash machines have been bombed in the Western Cape this year, most of them in the Goodwood area. Sabrics's Kevin Twiname said that they are aware that the police are doing everything it can and the banking industry will certainly support them as far as they can.

 Twiname adds that he reacted to calls to set up a dedicated task team to tackle ATM bombings in the province.

 Twiname said in some of the provinces there are dedicated units and in the Western Cape I am aware of dedicated an investigative unit, that’s the way to go. We would like to see a little more coordination from a national point of view.

Two weeks ago the Institute for Security Studies said it was possible that the people previously responsible for cash-in-transit heists may now be targeting ATM's instead.
The ISS said a syndicate may be at play.
