POLICE in the Spanish region of Catalonia have requested help from other forces in an attempt to track down a gang that has been using explosives to blow up ATMs.

The Mossos d’Esquadra have asked their colleagues from other regions to “increase security measures” given the risk of possible “explosions at ATMs,” according to the Spanish newspaper El Español.

There have been four such incidents, according to the police, and six months of investigations so far unsuccessful.

The latest incident was detected at the end of October, when there was an explosion at a bank on Marina street in Barcelona.

At the time, the modus operandi was related to two similar attacks at Bankinter branches, in which the cash stored in the ATM was stolen from the location.

Another robbery of this type was also registered in July, which is when the Mossos began to investigate.

Catalan police previously managed to arrest another gang using the same method and targeting ATMs in supermarkets and gas stations.

They would use a hose to introduce a mixture of chemicals into the machines, causing them to explode. They then hid abroad to make it more difficult for authorities to detect them.
