9M Euros Taken in French Motorway Robbery

Police in France are hunting a group of battle hardened thieves who attacked two secure vans carrying jewels at a motorway toll during the evening of Tuesday 10th March 2015. The attackers made off with 9 million euros worth of goods. Gendarmes and other authorities are combing the Burgundy region south east of Paris for the gang, after the latest in a string of big jewel robberies in France in recent years.

No one was injured in the attack on the A6 highway connecting Paris and Lyon. The drivers of the two vans were forced out of the vehicles by the attackers, who made off with the jewels, according to sources close to the investigation.

Attacks on special vehicles carrying jewels or cash often require equipment such as explosives or assault riffles, and while they occurred regularly at the beginning of the 2000′s in France, they have dwindled in recent years.
