On Monday an attempt was made to blast an ATM in Berkel en Rodenrijs, north of Rotterdam. The machine was intact, according to the police. "It appears to be a failed ATM robbery. We are still investigating what happened."
Near the machine, the police found two cylinders filled with gas, which are standard tools of ATM robbers. There was no trace of the perpetrators. The police took action because the burglar alarm had gone off at that branch of ABN Amro.
