BASSETERRE – Thieves on the island of Nevis have confounded police after stealing an entire ATM at the Vance Amory Airport and making a similar attempt at another location.
St Kitts/Nevis National Bank officials reported early Wednesday afternoon that the ATM, which was located just outside the arrivals hall of the airport, was stolen.
According to police, the robbers left behind only the wires that had been attached to the machine.
And even as investigations continue into the bizarre incident, police confirmed they were also probing reports that another attempt was made to rob another St Kitts/Nevis ATM at another location.
Police confirm that bandits attempted to rob the machine on Tuesday night but were unsuccessful. However, the machine was damaged.
It is unclear whether the two incidents were related.
No arrests have been made.
