Australian police allege that a Bulgarian crime gang is accused of illegally withdrawing AUD 0.387 M (USD 0.282 M) from ATMs with data-skimming equipment, Victoria-based daily The Age reports.

It also quotes police officials as saying one of the gang members, which arrived in Australia last year, is "on the run".

The allegations come after hearings in Melbourne Magistrates Court during a bail application for Todor Tsenov, 35, a Bulgarian national accused of having withdrawn AUD 187 000 from ATMs in central Melbourne.
