Raid on Suspected Robbers

Published onsdag 6 oktober 2010 kl 16.15
Is the high price of gold behind a recent surge of robberies?

Armed police moved in to arrest a five men, after a tip off that they were planning to rob a goldsmith shop.

Several of the group were forced to the ground by police, who had guns drawn and were wearing body armour. The arrest happened on the highway west of Borås.

One witness described the scene as "unreal and unpleasant, like something from a film" said one witness.

Also on Wednesday two teenaged men were arrested, suspected of robbing a goldsmith in Halmstad.

The police are now looking into a connection between the number of recent gold robberies in western Sweden. The high gold price is thought to be behind this surge.
