Authorities here merely said an investigation is continuing within the framework of international cooperation, when asked to confirm Greek press reports that searches are underway on Greek territory to trace a portion of a large quantity of precious metals stolen last October from the Sofia Airport.

The Hollywood-style robbery has been dubbed by Bulgarian media as the “robbery of the century”.

A total of six individuals, all with a criminal record, were arrested on Nov. 10, 2010 as suspects in the Oct. 18 robbery when 378 kg of silver, 20 kg of gold and 1.8 kg of platinum were stolen overnight from a warehouse in Sofia Airport, after the suspects drilled a hole in a wall.

The Bulgarian interior minister stated after the arrests that a large part of the stolen silver and pieces of gold jewelry had been recovered during searches in the homes and offices used by the six suspects, among them, a former customs officer believed to have masterminded the heist.
