A fresh report from the Metropolitan Police explains that two more individuals have been arrested in connection with the raid on Hatton Garden Safety Deposit Ltd – taking the total number of arrested suspects up to nine.
A 58-year-old man and a 43-year-old man were arrested yesterday afternoon (May 19).
Detective Superintendent Craig Turner, head of Scotland Yard’s Flying Squad, has also appealed for information to find a van (pictured from CCTV footage) possibly used by the gang at the time of the raid.
He explains: “I would like to make an appeal for information around a van that was seen in the area of Hatton Garden over the Easter bank holiday weekend.
“It was a white Transit van, registration DU53 VNG, which was caught on CCTV near Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Ltd.
“We have had the CCTV from an early stage of the investigation but we are now releasing the registration of the van. Did you see anyone loading or unloading a white van in the Hatton Garden area over the Easter bank holiday?
“So far we haven’t managed to recover the van yet. Have you seen a van matching this description and registration since the burglary in Hatton Garden or do you know where it is now?
“If you have seen it or have any information that would help our inquiry please call the Flying Squad on 020 8785 8655 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.”
