A daring heist took place in Waikkala, Angampitiya, Wennappuwa, as a gang of thieves targeted the Rural Bank belonging to the Wennappuwa Cooperative Society. The thieves entered the bank by cutting through a window grill, and once inside, they used machines to break into the bank's safe. The stolen loot is reported to be nearly 7 million rupees worth of gold.

In addition to the theft, the criminals also made off with the DVR connected to the bank's CCTV cameras, effectively erasing any recorded evidence of their actions. Authorities are now examining the frames from CCTV cameras installed in nearby houses to aid in their investigations and hopefully track down the suspects involved in this audacious robbery.
