Canadian police have arrested four men in connection with last week’s theft of $7.6 million worth of silver from the Port of Montreal.
The robbery occurred last Wednesday when a Maersk shipping container containing 16 tonnes of silver was stolen from under nose of port authorities. Somehow the gang evaded port security and over 350 video cameras.
Canadian police confirmed overnight they had located the missing container, made a number of arrests and recovered some of the stolen silver.
