High speed escape in luxury vehicle but with difficulty
MADRID (Agencies) The main distribution centre for SEUR, Spain's largest courier company, was attacked yesterday by an armed gang wearing hoodies. The alarm sounded at 3.50, when a van slammed into the security chamber that held the most valuable objects such as jewelry, watches, diamonds and gold. They knew exactly where to hit, and the suspicion is that this is an experienced gang, probably with insider help. Investigations are under way. There was a luxury vehicle waiting for them but they crashed on a roundabout on their way to the M-40, so they pointed a pistol at a woman driver and took her car instead, leaving behind some of the booty.
