I know there was a whiff of speculation about this possible connection straight after the robbery happened but I suspect that was probably based on no
more than the previous one in Belfast was the biggest robbery of cash until this one.
In each case I think it's pretty certain that the enormous amounts of dosh were both a surprise to those stealing it and, ultimately, a major problem
for them.......but in their stupid greed I suppose they couldn't help themselves but lift the lot when it came to it.
(For those unfamiliar with the Belfast robbery the raid netted so much cash that the bank issuing the notes - here in NI local banks can issue their
own £ Sterling notes instead of everyone just using Bank of England ones - that the bank very quickly phased out and replaced the type(s) stolen with
new designs thereby rendering much of what was stolen useless and simply so much waste paper.)
I stand to be corrected but is it not fair to say that all talk of any such link Between this robbery and the Belfast one has now disappeared?
