robbersIn a scene straight out of an action movie, a helicopter filled with thieves touched down on top of a building for a robbery while cops were left helpless.

Landing on top of a warehouse that stored cash awaiting distribution to ATMs across Sweden, thieves lowered down on ropes onto the roof of the building. Using explosives, they blasted their way into the building where they grabbed the cash. Police, waiting for the SWAT team to arrive, stood helplessly at the lower level of the building. As the thieves were packing up their loot, police discovered a package labeled “bomb” lying next to the helicopter. Deciding that the risk was too great, police stood by while the robbers retreated to the sky.

The helicopter was later found with no sign of the robbers or the cash. The Swedish police are offering seven million Kronor – about 1 million dollars for information regarding these airborn crooks.
