EPT Berlin Robbery Solved
Posted on June 3, 2010 by Shay Greenberg for Luckyroom.com
No more than three months needed by the German Police to completely solve the EPT Berlin robbery back at March 6th. This weekend, a man – who also participated on the poker event named Mahomet Abu Si was arrested in Berlin in his car. Abu Si was named by the other robbers as the “brain” behind the robbery but was unable to leave the country as the German authorities had at their disposal the face and the profile of the man blocking all country’s exits.
The robbery was partly successful as the gang managed to leave the building with €240,000. Their loot could be higher as one man from the security managed to re-claim a bag with over €500,000 just outside the tournament hotel. The organizers of the tournament however, took partial blame as they didn’t take proper security measures to protect the money which were in the lobby 20 meters away from the entrance of the hotel. The German authorities had at their disposal the video from the TV close circuit which led them to arrest 4 persons within a week. The interrogation revealed the name of the robbery “brain” who was eventually arrested as well this weekend.
