    The four Bulgarians accused of stealing money from Automated Teller Machines (ATM) were on Monday rearrested and sent to the Central Police Station.

    There was drama at the Buganda Road court when the four suspects remained holed up in one of the courtrooms and refused to come out of the court premises.

    However, police officers dragged out one by one and had them handcuffed and taken to the nearby CPS. Their lawyer could do little to protest the rearrests.

    The Bulgarians are facing 30 counts of forgery.

    The presiding magistrate said that bail granted earlier to the suspects was for one case, while other cases are still pending against them, and that the suspects cannot therefore released.

    Katsarski Milen, Adrian Dimitrov, Ivan Ganchev Emilov, and Ivonov Anton are accused of trying to steal money from Stanbic Bank accounts.

    They were recently caught trying to steal money from a Stanbic Bank ATM in Natete. Upon being arrested, 45 ATM cards were recovered with a list of their pin numbers.

    Also recovered from their rented house in Naalya were two laptops and an assortment of equipment that included an external hard drive, soldering wire and an ATM reader.
