The 33-year-old Bulgarian who allegedly pulled off an audacious theft of BGN 1.5 M from the bank car he was driving back in June has surrendered to the police, Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov has announced.
Police in Plovdiv were alerted about an abandoned cash transporter on June 22, and upon arriving they also found that the vehicle was empty.
The equivalent of BGN 1.5 M in various currencies was missing and the cash transporter's driver, 33-year-old Georgi Enev, immediately became the suspect. The man was nowhere to be found and his Opel Kadett discovered abandoned some 15 km away from the city of Plovdiv
On Thursday, Enev entered the Plovdiv Prosecutor's Office accompanied by his lawyer, the Interior Minister has told local media.
In the aftermath of the adventurous crime, Internet forums in Bulgaria were overflowing with messages of support and encouragement for the wanted man. The widespread support begs comparison with the mysterious case of the so-called D.B. Cooper back in the 70s.
