The gang that couldn’t get away

Police arrest two men for taxi robbery just 16 minutes after crime was committed

North Jutland Police yesterday arrested two men for robbing a taxi driver 16 minutes after they had left his cab in Aalborg.

Just before 1 am on Thursday morning, police received a report that the two had pulled “a pistol-like object” and robbed the driver. A police canine patrol then arrested two men, 18 and 51, at 1:08 am and charged them with the crime

The investigation also led to the arrest of a 43-year-old women for possibly being involved in the crime.

World’s shortest crime spree
The hapless crooks are suspected of being behind the robbery of a downtown Aalborg arcade on Wednesday evening.

The arcade was robbed by a man wielding “a pistol like object” while wearing something that looked like a checkered tablecloth around his face. He got away with a small amount of cash.
