ATM precautions advised

7:30 am on 15 February 2012

Police in Waikato are urging business owners to take security steps to avoid ATM machines, after two were targeted last week.

One was at a supermarket in Whangamata and the other at a chartered club in Waihi Beach.

The ATM in Whangamata was opened with a jemmy bar, but the other ATM at the club was ripped out of the wall.

Detective Simon Everson advises operators of ATM machines to remove cash from the devices each night and leave the door open.
