Four foreigners had been arrested in Mirissa for attempting to steal data from ATM machines, police said.

They said an investigation was launched after a complaint was lodged with the Kotavila Police Station claiming that a foreigner had attempted to steal data from an ATM machine using a skimming device at a private bank in Mirissa.

The foreigners, two Polish nationals, a Bulgarian and an Estonian national were arrested on Wednesday following the investigations.

Police said the arrested suspects would be produced in the Matara Magistrate's Court. (Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya)

    Foreigners allowed to enter because they are white skinned and have 10 dollars in their pockets. Welcome to Sri lanka and rob all banks.
