EPT Berlin robbers convicted

EPT Berlin robbers convicted

Friday, 2 July 2010

A court in Berlin has sentenced the four men involved in the outlandish robbery at the European Poker Tour event in March.

The 21-year-old ringleader was sent to prison for three years and nine months with his three 19 and 20 year-old accomplices handed three and a half year terms in a young offenders institute.

All four men had confessed to the German authorities about their involvement in the raid and it's thought that their confessions played a part in their lenient sentences. The group didn't divulge the whereabouts of the stolen money though. So far only €4,000 has been recovered with over €230,000 still yet to be accounted for.

This was moment that the robbers struck.
