Man held on suspicion of robbing same bank twice
A man suspected of robbing the same bank in Basel twice in a matter of months is now in custody, according to the cantonal prosecutors’ office.
He was arrested on Saturday.
The 46-year-old is thought to have robbed the Basel-Land Kantonalbank in Oberdorf in April and then again in August. Each time he got away with several thousand francs.
Police say they received numerous tipoffs after a reward of CHF 25,000 was offered.
The money will be paid if conviction is secured.
