Police suspect that a professional team was responsible for a raid on an ATM at a Suphanburi market on Sunday. Some 4.25 million baht was stolen from the machine.

The thieves used crowbars to lever the cartridge containing the money from the machine and disabled and stole its own CCTV and data storage unit, reported Thairath.

But police say they have evidence from other CCTV in the Bang Pla Ma market area that will lead them to a quick arrest.

The machine was targeted in the early hours of Sunday morning when all was quiet in the area and police said the thieves had 30 minutes to do their work. They are thought to have used an Isuzu pick-up but a view of the registration plate was unclear.

However,ne of the faces of two men was captured on CCTV in the area and Suphan cops said this should help them to a quick arrest as they suspect they know the man.

The ATM was dusted for fingerprints and bank staff who had filled the machine in front of the Mae Buay restaurant have been interviewed.
