Police going all out


Share post:

Police?in Barbados are in contact with their counterparts in several countries, in an effort to obtain more information about the two Bulgarians who were arrested for infiltrating a number of ATM machines last Sunday night.
Mark Thompson, Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of crime, told the MIDWEEK NATION yesterday that they were definitely in contact with both regional and international personnel.
“We have been having regular dialogue with our regional and international partners as we seek to close out this particular investigation.
“Additionally, it is important to note that the discourse is all designed to garner data to help enhance our surveillance system so that we can properly and proactively identify the risks of occurrence of such crimes and thereafter institute measures to mitigate against such,” he said.
The Bulgarians apparently went on a sophisticated ATM?spree over the weekend, hitting several machines along the West and South Coasts. They were caught at the airport with close to $500 000 in cash hidden in suitcases, their underwear and shoes. Police also seized laptops and card readers believed to be used in the commission of these crimes.
Thompson said because of the complexity of the matter, police might not be able to conclude the investigations until the end of the week.
