Sparkasse ATM Exploded; Culprits Escape in Alfa Romeo

In Böhmfeld, a small town located in the Eichstätt district of Germany, a group of unidentified criminals committed an audacious act of theft. Once again, they targeted an ATM machine at the Sparkasse, a renowned German savings bank. The criminals, who are currently unidentified, used explosives to break into the ATM and steal the money inside. The Bavarian State Criminal Police Office, or Landeskriminalamt (LKA), is currently investigating the crime and is urgently seeking any witnesses who may be able to provide crucial information.

The criminals executed their burglary in the early hours of Thursday morning at approximately 3:50 a.m. They planted the explosives at the Sparkasse branch located at Gaimersheimer Str. 16 in Böhmfeld. After the explosion, they quickly fled the scene in a light-colored car, possibly an Alfa Romeo, towards the nearby A9 motorway, according to the local police report.

The Bavarian State Criminal Police Office (BLKA) is diligently investigating the case. They have plans to send the remains of the explosives to the Forensic Institute in Munich. The investigators hope that a thorough examination of the explosives may provide some leads about the perpetrators.

This is not the first time that such an incident has happened in the area. The same group of criminals is suspected to have targeted an ATM in Kleinmehring on January 29th. In that incident, too, they blew up the ATM machine at the Sparkasse.

The LKA is appealing to the public for their assistance in solving this case. They have posed the following questions:

► Did anyone notice any suspicious individuals or vehicles, particularly dark-colored ones, in the vicinity of Gaimersheimer Straße in Böhmfeld during the night of the incident?

▶︎ Did anyone make any observations in the surrounding area prior to the incident that could be connected to the ATM explosion?

▶︎ Does anyone have any relevant information about the crime, the perpetrators, or the vehicle used in their escape?
