The report of the forensic investigation team of the police has now been added to the file. This states that an investigation into bullet impacts in four homes in Broek in Waterland has shown that it concerns police ammunition. A bullet impact in the windshield of a car and two bullet holes in a horse trailer also come from police weapons.
The robbery was committed in broad daylight in May this year at a branch of Schöne Edelmetaal in Amsterdam-Noord. The robbers threatened with automatic firearms and a knife and fired into the air outside the property. They captivated employees of the company with tie wraps.
The police came en masse to the incident and gave chase when the robbers took off in several fast cars. The flight ended in a meadow near Broek in Waterland:
Six suspects were arrested in that manhunt, a 47-year-old French suspect was shot dead by the police. Tomorrow the suspects will appear in court in Amsterdam during a second preparatory session.
