Robbers Steal $3K From Bitcoin ATM in Canada – Details
Two masked men broke into a Canadian health food store and took CA$4,000 ($3,000) cash from the Bitcoin ATM inside the store.
The food store, Simply Delicious is located in Vernon with population of around 40,000, a city in the Okanagan region of the Southern Interior of the province of British Columbia in Western Canada.
According to a report by Amy Castor, around 4 am on Tuesday, November 19th, the two masked robbers broke into the store, smashing the front windows in the process, and then headed straight to the Bitcoin ATM.
They smashed the Genesis Coin Bitcoin ATM installed in December 2018, and took around CA$4,000 ($3,000) cash from it, but “left CA$50,000 ($37,600) in a separate canister still inside the machine.”
The police arrived at the store within 15 minutes of the alarms going off but the men had already fled the scene.
