A pair of armed bank robbers dressed as guards made off with €4m in cash from a bank in the heart of Italy’s financial capital, police said.
Officers in Milan said that the two robbers were dressed like guards making a regular collection.
The cash was ready for transport when they arrived, and the pair wielded a gun to force staff into a bathroom before making off with the money, in both dollars and euro.
The staff members were able to free themselves about 10 minutes after the robbery and summoned police.
No one was injured and police are searching for the criminals.
