Footage released of Swedish helicopter heist

Text size Aa Aa

Dramatic security camera pictures have been released of a daring commando-style heist in Sweden last year.

A helicopter was seen delivering masked gunmen to the glass roof of a Swedish cash depot. They smashed their way in and used explosives and a mechanical saw to access the huge sums stored.

A haul equivalent to more than four million euros was then loaded into the helicopter. And it was mission accomplished for last September’s pre-dawn raid in Stockholm as the aircraft took off.

Ten people have been charged in connection with the commando-style robbery. Their trial is due to start next month.

The helicopter was later abandoned outside the Swedish capital. Most of the money has still not been found.
