Hatton Garden heist police make new arrest | London


A fresh arrest has been made by detectives investigating the 2015 Hatton Garden heist.

Officers from Scotland Yard’s Flying Squad held a 57-year-old man in an early-morning raid in Islington, north London, on Tuesday.

The suspect was arrested at around 7.30am on suspicion of non-residential burglary after his house was searched.

Scotland Yard said a number of items had been seized.

The audacious heist was carried out over the Easter weekend in 2015, when a gang ransacked 73 boxes at Hatton Garden Safe Deposit after using a drill to bore a hole into the vault wall.

Valuables worth up to £29 million, including gold, diamonds and sapphires, were taken.

Nine people were convicted and jailed for their roles in the raid, one of the biggest in UK history.
