Fourth person charged in record U.K. cash robbery makes court appearance

The fourth person charged with involvement in a 53-million-pound (US$92 million Ђ 78 million) robbery of a cash warehouse in southern England appeared in court Friday and was ordered to remain in custody.

Jetmir Bucpapa, 24, spoke only to confirm his name, age and address and to say he understood the charge. He did not apply for bail, and was ordered held until a further court date on March 13.

Bucpapa is accused of conspiracy to commit robbery in connection with the huge theft of cash from the Securitas Cash Management Ltd. depot last week.

Police continued questioning a 33-year-old man arrested Monday, after getting court permission to extend his detention for 24 hours. He was not identified, as he has not been charged.

Three other people charged in the case made their first court appearance on Thursday, and were held in custody until the March 13 hearing.

Car salesman John Fowler, 57, was charged Wednesday with conspiracy to rob the cash depot in Tonbridge, about 55 kms (35 miles) southeast of London. He was also charged with kidnapping cash depot manager Colin Dixon, his wife, Lynn, and their 9-year-old son Craig, and with handling stolen goods, steel cages used to contain cash, reports the AP.
