The AP is reporting that Berlin police were able to arrest the 3rd member of the group that robbed the EPT Berlin event on March 6th. Police were alerted that 20 year-old Mustafa Ucarkus was arrested at Tegel Airport in Berlin after his lawyer tipped off authorities to his arrival.

The arrest of Ucarkus leaves only one suspect still on the run. Jihad Chetwie, the final member of the team that stormed the Grand Hyatt in downtown Berlin armed with guns and machetes is still on the run.

The suspects made off with an estimated $332,000 during the caper, which occurred in broad daylight while three separate tournaments were taking place inside the Hyatt. Fortunately no shots were fired, and only a few minor injuries were reported. No word has come down yet as to whether any of the stolen money has been recovered.
