Primark raid

source

The BBC reports

French police are hunting for three armed men who stormed a Primark store in an suspected robbery attempt north of Paris.

The gunmen fled the scene after special forces evacuated 18 people trapped inside the Qwartz shopping centre in Villeneuve-la-Garenne.

None of those released 18 people was injured. The area around the shopping centre has been shut down.


Further reports suggest the raiders got away with a huge truckload of Primark clothing possibly worth in excess of €500.

Marvellous!

And in other news, a single-seater plane has crashed into a graveyard in Dublin. Police have so far recovered over thirteen thousand bodies...

Is there any point to such a robbery?

Michael - :)

James - not as far as I can see. Surely stores don't have huge wads of cash these days.

DiploMad - thanks. It's unfair too - as cruelty has to be.
