AMSTERDAM – The police in Almere city made an astonishing discovery after pursuing two robbers on Wednesday. Café patrons had taken some of the booty that the fleeing men were forced to leave behind while being pursued by police.
The robbers left the stolen money behind after being cornered by a police car while on their motor-scooter. After abandoning their scooter the two men managed to escape the police pursuing them.
The police spokesperson for the Flevoland police is furious that people took the money.
"We were concentrating on the robbers of course. The entire amount stolen is part of the investigation. We ask anyone who might know more about this to contact the police."
The neighbourhood in Almere city was cordoned off and police used dogs to try and track down the robbers, the Telegraaf reports. The police are carrying out a forensic investigation.
