In the early hours of 7 June, officers from the French National Police (Police Nationale) and the Spanish Civil Guard (Guardia Civil) carried out a series of coordinated raids close to Paris (France) and Malaga (Spain), writes Europol.

A total of five suspects – 3 French nationals and 2 Algerian nationals - were arrested for their involvement in an armed bank robbery in Paris. In 2019, this organised crime group pulled off a bank robbery off the Champs-Elysee, locking staff and customers in for hours while they opened over sixty safe deposit boxes before fleeing with their loot. The value of the stolen items is estimated at several millions of euros.The arrests this week took place in the region of Paris.

A property owned by one of the suspects in Spain has also been seized in the framework of a Freezing Order. .
