MOSCOW, July 29. /TASS/. Police officers in southern Moscow have arrested the driver of an armored bank truck on suspicion of staging a fake robbery of his own vehicle and stealing 4.5 million rubles (about $67,000 US dollars), a Russian Interior Ministry spokesperson told Tass on Friday.
According to the ministry’s spokeswoman, Irina Volk, police received a telephone call from an armored bank truck driver who claimed two unidentified persons had allegedly threatened him at gunpoint and carjacked his vehicle and as he was transporting money from ATM cash machines in the south side of Moscow. Further, he alleged that they had apparently ordered him to drive to Kashirskoye Highway, where at some point along the ride, they supposedly threw him out of the vehicle and vanished together with the money.
In a strange twist, following a police investigation into the incident, authorities established that the man had faked the attack, making off with roughly 4.5 million rubles. Criminal charges have been filed against the suspect, the spokeswoman said.
