Thieves failed to prise open an ATM belonging to Turk bank, despite heavy use of crowbars.
This ATM is located on the main Esentepe to Tatlisu road at the Blue Dream market square. The thieves did manage to get past the fascia of the machine but could not dent the steel case behind it. Instead they ran off with the data router inside the machine.
It has been determined that there was around 30,000 TL inside the steel casing, which was undisturbed. Also security cameras were able to catch the thieves as they attempted to break into the machine. Police are currently looking for an unnamed individual who they suspect was involved.
A couple of months ago, a similar attempt was made on this particular ATM, again unsuccessfully.
