ATM-exploding robbers strike again in Ticino

National News // Oct. 23, 2019

Thieves have targeted yet another ATM in canton Ticino – but despite using a large amount of explosives to get to the cash, the machine in the town of Comano held firm and the police are on their trail.

It’s the seventh time in under a year cash machines in the Italian speaking canton have been targeted. The appeal lies in the proximity of the border.

Everyone nearby heard the explosion at 3.30 yesterday morning – including staff at the local TV station. Police were called immediately and one person was seen running into the woods.

In November last year a similar attack in Coldrerio netted the robbers CHF 400,000 – who quickly escaped across the border to Italy.

Police suspect the same gang is involved.
