The Guardia Civil caught a man redhanded trying to gain access to an ATM with a cordless disc cutter in an Armilla shopping Centre.
The 35-year-old man from Pinos Puente, with an impressive criminal record, didn’t manage to reach the money by the time that the police tapped him on the shoulder, but he did manage to leave the ATM completely wrecked.
The bank to whom the ATM belonged put the cost of he damage at 21,000 euros. The damage caused to the metallic blind, through which he gained access, was not included in this sum.
