Police find bank heist millions in warehouse

March 4, 2006


— Police found bags with millions of dollars from Britain's biggest bank robbery in a London warehouse Friday and charged a fifth person in the elaborate theft.

Detectives descended on an industrial complex and found the cash in one of the units, a car business in a working-class neighborhood in southeast London, police said.

Officers found bags filled with notes thought to amount to "several million pounds," or the equivalent of millions of dollars, police said.

Police arrested a 43-year-old man at the warehouse and were questioning him about the robbery of the Securitas Cash Management Ltd. warehouse in Tonbridge, 30 miles southeast of London.

Thieves took $92 million during the night of Feb. 21-22.

Police charged a fifth suspect in the case. Lea John Rusha, 33, a roofer, was charged with conspiracy to commit robbery, Kent Police said.
