An ATM was blown up in Eersterivier, Cape Town, on Wednesday morning, Western Cape police said.

Captain Frederick van Wyk said a gang targeted a supermarket ATM on London Way just after midnight, getting away with a number of money boxes.

Police noticed a white Mazda speeding past them on the way to the scene, gave chase and lost them a short while later.

The car was later found abandoned on 5th Avenue in Malibu village.

No arrests have yet been made.

“The spate of ATM bombings is worrisome to SAPS, and every endeavour is made to apprehend those responsible, “ Van Wyk said.

He asked people to be cautious when using ATMs in the early hours of the morning. - Sapa
