Police on Monday were searching for the unknown assailants who drove a van through the front windows of the MEC exposition center in Paeania, eastern Attica, in the early hours and made off with a cashpoint machine that was located in the entrance.

Officers found the truck in Menidi, western Attica, a few hours later.

It had been burned to erase evidence, while the ATM was also found, broken into and empty of its contents.
