Posted on Friday, April 02, 2010 by "T".

Last weekend a casino in Basel, Schweiz was robbed. Around 10 armed men broke in through the entrance door, dragged guns and fired a warning shot before demanding everyone to lay down on the floor while they went through their handbags and pockets taking everything of value. The robbers failed with getting in to the bank valve, though, they still managed to get away with quite a lot of money. So far the police hasn't arrested anyone and there are very few details left out for media to take part of.

This is the 4th casino related robbery in Europe in a very short time. In the beginning of February a casino in Malta was robbed. On the 6th March the Grand Hyatt hotel, where EPT Berlin took place, was robbed. The very next day a money transport truck was robbed outside Casino Cosmopol in Stockholm.

EPT Berlin robbery: All suspects in custody

Posted on Tuesday, March 23, 2010 by "T".

During last weekend the German police arrested the 2 last remaining suspects for the EPT Berlin robbery, Mustafa Ucarkus and Jihad Chetwie. 20-year-old Mustafa Ucarkus was arrested at Tegel airport after his lawyer gave authorities a tip on where he was.

Jihad Chetwie, the final suspect in the March 7th heist at EPT Berlin, turned himself in at Tegel airport after flying in from Beirut, Lebanon. It seems like he was afraid of getting caught in Lebanon and therefore decided to return to Germany and most probably German prison.

There are very few details regarding the money from the robbery. But its probably just a matter of weeks before we get to know the full story behind the EPT Berlin robbery.
