Gone in 6 minutes: $5m in cash stolen from cargo plane

Armed robbers stole $5 million in cash from a Lufthansa cargo plane that made a stop at a freight airport outside Sao Paulo, Brazil. At least five men armed with rifles broke into the terminal using a Hilux pickup truck painted with colors identical to those of the airport security company. The thieves disarmed security guards and locked them inside their vehicles before getting away with the cash. Lufthansa’s plane had been travelling from Guarulhos airport in Sao Paulo and was making a stop at Viracopos – Brazil’s biggest freight terminal – with Zurich as its final destination. The stolen money had been held by Brinks.
Cargo theft is on the exponential rise in Brazil, where most targets are semi-trucks, especially those serving Rio de Janeiro.
