Robbers Grab US$406K From Free Zone Store Benque Viejo Police are actively investigating the theft of nearly a million dollars from a store at the Western Free Zone. While no arrests have been made, cops have concluded that the robbery over the weekend “has the characteristicts of an inside job.” Police sources have confirmed that although the Benque Free Zone compound is secured by two night security guards the men are claiming that they did not hear or see any suspicious activity on the night of the break-in since they were at the gas station when the burglary took place.

Reports are that three men wearing masks successfully entered the compound sometime between 1:50am and 2:50 a.m. on Sunday, September 9th by gaining access through an opening. Once inside the compound the men torched two metal doors and gained access to Kortobacco Limited. Surveillance cameras captured as the men went directly to the safe where the money was stored and made off with US $406,505.00 in cash. Police say that the manager of the business has reported that the owner of the establishment is out of the country. Several persons have been interviewed at this time.
