Robbers escaped with more than RM200,000 after breaking open an automated teller machine (ATM) of a bank here early yesterday.
Deputy state police chief Datuk Mazlan Lazim said the suspects, believed to be in their 30s, had used an oxy-acetylene gas welding procedure to break open the ATM and escape with all the money in it.

Mazlan said footage from closed-circuit television cameras installed at the premises was being examined.
He called on those with information to contact the nearest police station to facilitate in the investigation.
