In Aruba at least 9 shots were fired Friday night in a robbery attempt after clerks stepped out of their armoured vehicle while transporting money. What are the gun laws on Aruba? So much for violent crime not being an issue.
Spectacular raid on money-transport fails (Amigoe 3/31/2008)
ORANJESTAD – Money transporters of a security service in Eagle barely escaped the bullets of two raiders last Friday evening. The first shots were fired the moment the collecting clerks stepped out of their armoured vehicle to deliver a great amount of money they have collected, to their office. The clerks managed to reach their office unhurt. At least nine shots were fired. The police immediately closed off the area and started with the investigation together with the atraco-team and the technical criminal investigation department. They found some cartridges. Most of the bullets were shot in the wall. In the picture, some members of the investigation team entering the office to listen to the collecting clerks’ account.
