The police have arrested a man who allegedly stole from three ATMs on Jl. Condet Raya, East Jakarta.
Kramat Jati Police chief Comr. Nordin said the suspect, Mardiansyah, was an ATM maintenance technician.
"The suspect is a technician that services broken ATMs. On April 27, he was ordered to check three different ATMs," Nurdin said on Tuesday, kompas.com reported.
Nurdin said Mardiansyah was accompanied by a security guard named Haris who lost sight of Mardiansyah, the latter of whom is suspected of having stolen the keys of the ATMs before stealing cash from them.
"He allegedly took a total of Rp 36.05 million (US$2,497). He did all of that on the same day," Nurdin said.
The police were informed of the alleged theft after receiving a report of an ATM robbery and subsequently checked CCTV recordings that appear to show the suspect breaking into the ATMs.
Mardiansyah faces charges under Article 362 of the Criminal Code (KUHP) on theft, which carries a maximum five-year prison sentence. (ami)
