Ten charged over helicopter raid
Tuesday 20 July 2010
Ten men have been charged with robbery in relation to the theft of 39m kronor (£3.5m) in a commando-style helicopter raid on a Stockholm cash depot last year.
Prosecutor Leif Gorts said five men were charged with aggravated robbery and five with complicity, in one of the largest police investigations in Swedish history.
Three masked gunmen dropped on to the roof of the cash depot from a helicopter last September, broke into the building and set off explosions before hoisting themselves back up on rope lines.
Police say they have recovered some of the cash but that most remains missing and that at least two suspects remain at large. All the men have denied the charges.
