"Surveillance images showed "two men wearing face masks and hats walking away with bags packed with cash directly withdrawn from ATMs", First Commercial said in the statement. At least two suspects were involved — one Russian man, and another foreign suspect whose nationality remains unknown, according to Taipei police. "It is still not clear how the suspects stole such a large amount of money from the ATMs. My understanding is this is the first time such a criminal method has been discovered here," an officer told AFP."
"It took the duo five to 10 minutes to steal money from each of the 34 ATMs over the weekend, the bank said, adding that the theft spanned machines at 20 branches. It said more than 400 of its ATMs of the same type had been shut down following the heist, which cost the bank Tw$70 million ($2.2 million)."
