Officials ID one of Olympia museum robbers

Police have identified at least one of the two thieves that broke into the archaeological museum at Olympia in the Peloponnese last week, Skai reported on Wednesday.

After examining the seven-minute CCTV footage from the heist, police have reportedly identified one former convict of Albanian origin who is suspected of having taken part in jewelry shop robberies in Olympia and Krestena last year.

Police are scouring the area for evidence but haven’t been able to recover anything leading to the suspects.

Prime Minister Lucas Papademos on Wednesday declined Culture Minister Pavlos Geroulanos’s resignation over the incident.
