60-year-old German arrested in the Netherlands for robberies on money transport

The Dutch police arrested a 60-year-old German this morning for a series of robberies on cash transports in Germany. Where the man was arrested has not been disclosed.

According to the Cologne police, there are strong indications that the man was involved in three robberies. The first was in Cologne in March 2018, the second a year later at Cologne / Bonn Airport and the last in Frankfurt in November 2019.

German police say the man used a machine gun in the airport robbery. A money transporter was seriously injured in that robbery and in the one in Frankfurt.

Spoor led to the Netherlands

The criminals used getaway cars that had been stolen in the Netherlands and had false license plates. The cars were later found burnt. The German police managed to identify one of the cars into which the robbers then transferred.

The trail led to the Netherlands, where the car was found. The car has been impounded. Cologne police say investigations into suspected accomplices of the man are continuing.

A European arrest warrant had been issued against the man. Germany is going to ask the Netherlands to hand him over.
