28-Year-Old Driver Escapes With Bullion Van Carrying $1.13m

The 28-year-old driver of an armoured bullion van disappeared this morning along with an estimated one million euros, police sources said.

“When they came back out, the van and the driver were gone,” one of the sources said.

The driver was aid to have stopped in front of a Western Union office, outside Paris, at around 6:00 am (0500 GMT) in Aubervilliers, a suburb just north of the capital, and stayed behind the wheel as two of his colleagues went inside, police told AFP.

“When they came back out, the van and the driver were gone,” one of the sources said.

Soon after, the van was found with the doors wide opened, but the driver had escaped with the bags of cash.

The two other employees had not been injured, the source said.
An inquiry has been opened by France’s anti-gang squad.
