Two individuals managed to hack into a bank ATM in Limassol and steal €21,000, police said on Monday.
The incident, which happened at 11.30pm on Sunday, took just 17 minutes.
Without providing much detail, police said one of the perpetrators opened a hole on the panel of the ATM belonging to a co-op bank on Griva Dhigeni Avenue, hacked into the system and made at least 12 withdrawals, taking all the cash in the machine.
The second perpetrator acted as a lookout.
The act was recorded by the ATM’s security camera but the thief’s face could not be seen as he wore a hoodie and covered his face with his hand.
According to reports, there have been two similar incidents in the Famagusta district recently.
