`Last week’s raid on a security depot in the county of Kent has been confirmed as the biggest heist in British history, netting robbers £53 million ($125.4 million), police said today.
Police hunting for the gang behind the heist are questioning four suspects held in the past 24 hours, Kent’s Assistant Chief Constable Adrian Leppard said in what he described as a major development in the case.
Seven others have been arrested but freed on bail since the heist on Thursday.
The six robbers posed as police officers.
They kidnapped the manager of the security depot, along with his wife and small child, and held them before making off with the cash.’
