National Bank ATM at St. Peter’s still closed

BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, AUGUST 3RD 2017 – The St. Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla National Bank ATM at St. Peter’s remained closed nearly one month after an unsuccessful attempt to break into the facility.
The attempt was made on the evening of Sunday 9th July or early morning of Monday 10th July reportedly without success.

“The residents of St. Peter’s have not been able to use the ATM since the attempt to break it. This morning (Thursday 3rd August) it is still shuttered from the public,” said a resident.
Although Police Crime Scene officers were seen around the ATM, there has been no statement from the law enforcement agency or from National Bank.
It was the third attempt in the past nine months that the National Bank ATM’s were targeted.
Last November thieves stole the entire ATM at the Vance Amory International Airport at Newcastle in Nevis.
The ATM which was situated on the outside the arrivals hall of the airport disappeared overnight on November 15 – 16. It was not until mid-afternoon that the airport authority and bank personnel realised that the ATM had disappeared. It has not been found and it is still not known how much money was stolen. No one has been arrested.
November 16, 2016, an attempt was also made to break into National Bank’s ATM at the C.A. Paul Southwell Industrial Site near TDC’s Home and Building Department in Basseterre.
