Two of three Ukrainian men suspected of stealing $1.5 million USD from ATMs in Bosnia have been taken into custody by Bosnian authorities. The men are accused of stealing from ATMs belonging to the Russian State-owned bank Sberbank. Dmytro Boyko and Oleksandr Zaysev were taken into custody but a third suspect, Yaroslav Tytarenko, fled to Hungary and is still at large. According to authorities, the three men withdrew the funds in a span of approximately 53 hours and were found to be in possession of $60,000 at the time of their arrest. According to a bank spokesperson, the ATMs were functioning normally and there were no signs of any physical tampering. “Computer-hacking tools” were used to withdraw the funds, according to a statement made by a court expert on information and communication.
