A BAND of armed robbers barged into an ATM (automated teller machine) booth in Quezon City while the machine was being repaired by technicians Tuesday night and emptied it of cash worth P2.4 million, police said.

The Quezon City Police District on Wednesday confirmed the robbery at a Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) ATM booth on Aurora Boulevard, between Gilmore and Dona Juana Rodriguez streets.

Insp. Alan de la Cruz, robbery section chief of the QCPD Criminal Investigation and Detection Unit, said four men wearing crash helmets and surgical masks entered the booth while the ATM was being repaired by two technicians around 9:30 p.m. of Oct. 13.

The robbers tied up one of technicians and threatened to shoot the other with a pistol, before seizing the machine’s “cassettes” that hold the cash that the ATM dispenses, De la Cruz said.
