The Limpopo Provincial Organised Crime Unit are hard on the heels of the unknown suspects who allegedly committed an ATM bombing at Global Filling Station in Duthuni village, under Thohoyandou policing area, in the early hours of Wednesday, 15 November 2023 at about 02:30.
Reportedly, a 40-year-old employee at the Filling Station was asleep when he heard a loud sound outside the premises but did not go out to investigate what was happening because he feared for his life.
The employee patiently waited and went outside to investigate while calling the police and management of the filling station afterwards.
Upon their arrival, they found an ATM that was situated outside the premises blasted with explosives and a substantial amount of money taken during the incident.
Police are investigating cases of theft, Contravention of Explosives and malicious damage to property.
A massive manhunt of the unknown suspects is underway and anyone with information that can assist is encouraged to contact the Investigating Officer Sergeant Ian Mabasa on 074 645 0000 or crime stop number 08600 10111 or nearest police station or MySAPSApp.
Police investigations are continuing.
