COPS in Seshego outside Polokwane have launched a manhunt for suspects who blasted an ATM at Makgofe on Friday, 31 March.  

According to Colonel Malesela Ledwaba, at about 1:30 am, a group of unknown men armed with rifles and pistols stormed the garage's kiosk and ordered everyone to lie on the ground. 

“These men allegedly proceeded to the store where they opened the Capitec ATM, and also detonated the drop-in safe, which caused an extensive damage to the whole store and stock,” Ledwaba said in a statement.

“No injuries to humans except for the damaged caused to a Taxi which parked near the ATMs,” Ledwaba added.  

Anyone with information that can assist police in tracking down the suspects is requested to contact Colonel Mamuhohi at 082 565 7288.
