The Dutch police struggle to catch ATM bombers, newspaper AD reports based on its own investigation. Last year there were 79 ATM bombings in the Netherlands, but only two perpetrators were convicted, according to the newspaper. Two court cases against groups suspected of 11 ATM bombings, are still ongoing.
The police are planning an experiment in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht in which they will more intensely target ATM bombers and ram-raiders. The experiment involves stopping these criminals by following them very obviously and annoyingly, taking their illegally earned money and also keeping an eye on their family members, NOS reports.
