Stolen cash found in harbour

COPENHAGEN, Denmark -- Police have discovered 10 million kroner ($1.25 million) in cash hidden at a boathouse in the southern harbour of Copenhagen.

The money is believed to be part of the 41 million kroner ($4.8 million) stolen during an armed robbery last November. The heist marks Denmark's biggest armed robbery in criminal history.

Police found the cash hidden in the cement floor of the building near a yacht club. They are now looking for a known suspect.

Despite the arrest of two young men in connection with the affair, a reward of 4 million kroner by an insurance company and the efforts of a 16-man police squad, the bulk of the cash is still missing.

Chief superintendent Willy Eliasen declined to comment on the circumstances surrounding the cash find.
