SINT MAARTEN/THE NETHERLANDS – Two people have been arrested after an ATM machine was blown up outside a bank in a Zuid-Holland village.
The blast in the early hours of Monday destroyed the cash dispenser at the Rabobank branch on Kennedyplein in Nieuwkoop, leaving banknotes lying in the road, Omroep West reported.
Two suspects were seen fleeing the scene on a scooter. Police used a helicopter equipped with a heat trace to find the scooter, which had been parked inside a delivery van. The two men sitting in the van were arrested.
Local residents were ordered to leave their homes and spent several hours in a sports hall after the explosives disposal service (EOD) found a suspicious device in the bank machine. (DutchNews)
