[VIDEO] 2 Thieves Run Off With Cash After Blowing Up ATM In Klang 7-Eleven Robbery
Two thieves broke into a convenience store in the early hours of 8 February and blasted open an ATM with a handmade bomb
Klang Utara police chief ACP S Vijaya Rao said the incident was believed to have occurred at 4.50am.
In a statement, he said, "The two suspects were believed to have blasted open the ATM before making a run with the money. The amount is still being investigated."
According to New Straits Times, the shop's employee discovered the glass door of the entrance shattered and the ATM destroyed at about 8am upon arriving for work.
The worker immediately called the police and officers were quickly dispatched to the scene. But the perpetrators were long gone when the police arrived.
Based on the closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage inside the store, the gang of robbers broke in through the front of the shop
The 20-second video clip, which has been shared by various parties online, shows the two suspects making their way in from the front entrance of the premises.
One of them places a device on the ATM before they both take cover on either side of the machine.
In just a matter of seconds, the device then detonates, blasting open the ATM and knocking down items from the surrounding shelves.
The suspects then scoop up the cash into duffel bags before fleeing the scene.
Police have launched a manhunt for the robbers and the case is being investigated under Section 457 of the Penal Code.
