Pretoria ATM blown up
31 August 2010, 09:00
Pretoria - An Absa ATM at the Kwaggasrand Engen garage, in Pretoria West, has been blown up and looted, police said on Tuesday.
Captain Jan Legoabe said that a man sat down next to the ATM without arousing the suspicions of people working at the filling station on Monday night.
When a garage employee walked up to him at 9.45pm, the man suddenly stood up and shouted at him to "run away".
The machine exploded and a hatchback pulled up. The machine was looted and the car then sped off again.
The man who had shouted the warning disappeared from the scene.
Nobody was injured and police are investigating. - Sapa

Has ATM bombing become "SECRET?"
We read about arrested and then the trail goes dead?
Who is protecting these criminals?
Is it a funding for a Third Force?
The crime of the Century!
