On Sunday morning, a Stollberg police patrol discovered a badly damaged ATM in Auer Strasse. Strangers had apparently blown the device open on Sunday night. As the police announced, parts of the machine were scattered within a radius of several meters in the parking lot. The cash box remained locked, however. Information on the amount of damage is not yet available.
The criminal police have started further investigations into causing an explosion and are looking for witnesses. Anyone who heard the explosion or observed people or vehicles in the commercial area during the night from Saturday to Sunday that could be connected to the crime should contact the Chemnitz criminal police on 0371 387 3448.
