HYDERABAD: In an unusual heist, unidentified miscreants entered a private bank through a hole in the wall and on being unable to open the locker, discovered their loot in the form of 10 Rs coins amounting to Rs 97,000 cash in Siddipet town of Telangana state. 

Police said nearly four to five offenders entered Laxmi Vilas Bank on the outskirts by making a hole in the wall on the rear side of the bank. On entering the bank, the thieves damaged the CCTV cameras.

Later they broke open two cupboards but could not open the locker. They found the coins in one of the cupboards and fled, but not before lifting the computer which is connected to the CCTVs.

They took away the hard disk but damaged the computer, discarding it in open fields outside the bank. Police said the break-in might have taken place between 1 am to 2.30 am.

The staff at a nearby garage heard noises from inside and alerted their owner, who alerted the manager, who then alerted the police.

However, when the cops reached the spot around 3 am, the miscreants had fled. Police are verifying the CCTV footage installed at nearby traffic junctions and also at dhabas on the outskirts for leads.
