Venice, July 1 - Three bandits aboard a boat and
armed with AK-47 semi-automatic rifles made off with 1.28
million euros in a heist of an armored vessel in Venice on
Monday, according to police.
The robbers stole two safes full of cash and left a third
behind that contained coins, witnesses said.
Police said the raid took place around dawn and was over in
under 30 seconds.
The armored boat had been in the process of delivering
money to local post offices and banks.
Shortly after leaving a dock near Piazzale Roma on the
western side of the city, the boat was flanked by the bandits'
motorboat.
"Stay calm, this is a raid," said one of the robbers
pointing the assault rifle, according to the three guards on
board.
One of the robbers then boarded the armored vessel, took
the loot and passed it to his accomplices in the getaway boat
which then sped away into the lagoon.
Police were called and attempted pursuit but to no avail.
The culprits are believed to be Italian.
