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.

After that the police heard about the robbery, they rushed to casino with cars, boats and helicopters looking for the robbers speedboat. However, the only thing they have found so far is a car in the sea, which they believe was used by the 5 robbers.
