Crooks using airport terminal pickup which they placed stickers mimicking a runway safety firm’s emblem stole $5m from a Lufthansa aircraft.
The spectacular heist was accomplished in a matter of minutes, according to New Paper 24 on Tuesday.
The crooks entered Viracopos Worldwide Airport’s freight terminal utilizing a pickup on which they’d “positioned stickers mimicking the runway safety firm’s emblem,” federal police stated in an announcement.
Germany-based Lufthansa’s airplane had been touring from Guarulhos airport in Sao Paulo and was making a cease at Viracopos – Brazil’s largest freight terminal – with Zurich as its ultimate vacation spot.
The stolen cash had been held underneath the auspices of safe transport supplier Brinks, in keeping with the Folha de Sao Paulo newspaper.
