Brighouse and Elland bank raids link
Jul 4 2009 by Joanne Douglas, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
POLICE investigating a series of bank raids say some of the suspects may have fled to Spain.
Officers investigating the raid at Lloyds TSB in Elland on June 16 say it could be linked to a raid on the Halifax Bank on Bethel Street, Brighouse, in January.
A substantial amount of cash was stolen during the two raids.
A gang of thieves from the Manchester area have been linked to the robberies.
But a spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said they were looking at the possibility that some of the culprits may have fled abroad.
