Berlin Police arrest possible planner of the EPT poker robbery

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Mar 22, 2010 Posted in EPT News | No Comments »

With all four armed robbers behind bars, Berlin Police announced they have arrested a 5th suspect in the robbery of a poker tournament in downtown Berlin. Officials are saying that the 28 year-old Lebanese man not only planned the crime, but also drove the getaway car.

With all four robbers behind bars, and seemingly spilling the beans on the whole robbery, police were led to the 5th suspect, who is markedly older than his four accomplices. Unfortunately, the money trail has yet to be picked up, and an estimated $327,000 is still unaccounted for.

The robbery has become one of the most followed international crime stories in quite some time, perhaps due to the brazenness of the robbers, and the high profile poker personalities who were at the tournament at the time.
