Bali Post says that the national police have arrested a manager from Bank Danamon suspected to have played a role in the theft of customers' money via the ATM system. Police say the manager was apprehended in Bandung on Friday, February 5, 2010. The arrest follows an earlier arrest, also in Bandung, of a manager working for Bank Central Asia (BCA).
Police admit they have been unable to establish a network or connection between the two men. Authorities have also arrested 3 people in Jakarta connection with the ATM fraud in Bali.
