Georgi Enev, the armored bank car driver, who allegedly pulled off an audacious theft of BGN 1.5 M back in June 2012, has been sentenced to 8 years in jail.

Enev pleaded guilty on Wednesday after his lawyer requested for the trial to be held under the short procedure without witness testimony.

Enev was charged with large-scale embezzlement of BGN 1.5 M from three banks and one security company, which called for 10 to 20 years of jail. He also faced confiscation of part or all of his assets and could be banned from practicing certain professions.

On June 22, 2012, police in Plovdiv were alerted about an abandoned cash transporter, 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 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. Several days later, Enev entered the Plovdiv Prosecutor's Office accompanied by his lawyer.
