Police in Germany have made another arrest in connection with the raid on the European Poker Tour event in Berlin at the beginning of March.
The 31-year-old, who was identified only as Mohammed Abou-C, was arrested while driving in Berlin on Friday, a day after a warrant for his arrest was issued. He is suspected of being the mastermind behind the daring robbery at the Grand Hyatt Hotel which saw thieves make off with €242,000 in cash. Prosecutor Martin Steltner told news agency AFP that the suspect observed where the money was while playing in a poker tournament. He is then alleged to have given that information to the robbers.Abou-C is the sixth person to be arrested in connection with the robbery. A 21-year-old German national provided details of three alleged co-conspirators in the week after the raid. Another man, who was suspected of driving the getaway car, was arrested shortly after.Despite the arrests, police have still only recovered €4,000 of the missing cash.
