Cash collector allegedly steals $8 million of bank’s money
In an accident that happened at around 10 a.m. local time in the city of Perm, a cash collector is reported to have attacked his colleagues as they were on their way to the bank in a cash-in-transit van with the money.
The suspect ordered the van to stop as they were driving through a wooded area, and threatened to shoot his weapon. Keeping his colleagues at gunpoint, the 36-year-old man stole a bag full of money and joined his accomplices, who were waiting for him in ambush.
A criminal case has been opened on charges of conspiracy to commit robbery. The police have offered a $10,000 ransom for information that will help detain the robber.
The man had been working as a security guard for 14 years.
