Staff and customers of a certain supermarket in South Africa did not bargain for what they experienced on Wednesday, August 1st.

Every thing seemed normal on the day until dare-devil robbers drove right into the supermarket and made away with an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) installed there.

The event looked like a Hollywood scene. 

As revealed in the social media video posted by the Intelligence Bureau SA, the robbers drove their van in reverse mode into the supermarket and apparently ordered shoppers and workers alike to freeze.

They jumped out of the vehicle, commando style, and, brandishing deadly weapons that included what looked like AK-47 rifles, drove fear into the shoppers who dove for cover.

The masked robbers then made for the location of the ATM and dragged it to the waiting pickup that was parked right inside the expansive shop, lifted up into the van and drove away. There was no security personnel in sight.

While a respondent expressed the wish that the robbers should meet an empty cash machine, another, Alex Mothobi Malinda-Lee Lötter, said, “I hear it was just loaded with cash,” concluding that the daylight robbers must have studied the cash movement into the ATM before striking.

Drilling expert, Carl Scholtz, however said, “Good luck if they think they’re getting money out of that ATM.”

The reason, he says, is because ATMs “stain all the money inside the moment they are tipped or knocked hard;” noting that if it was that easy to rob an ATM and get away, “then there would be more of those stolen money [in circulation].”
