Two men broke into a bank on the morning of 3 February (Sun) in Doren, Vorarlberg. They ripped a cash machine out of the ground and escaped.
The unknown offenders came in through the doors of the bank at 3 am. They secured the cash machine with a rope and ripped it out of the ground, presumably with an estate car.
According to witnesses, the men then took the cash machine to a sawmill two kilometres away where they loaded it onto the vehicle.
The investigators presume that the offenders took the Vorderwälder Straße (L4) to Langen, turned in the direction of Sulzberg-Thal and drove in the direction of Weiler (Allgäu). The police hope that local residants will report any clues regarding the escape route.
Klaus Stadelmann, chairperson of Raiffeisenbank Weißachtal, estimates the damage to be around 10,000 Euros. The video of the surveillance camera is now being evaluated by the Criminal Investigation Department.
The police ask for any information under: +43-59133-80-3333
