German investigators have announced that they are searching for three suspects who have 6.5 million Euros ($7.6 million) in cash after breaking into a customs office.

The robbery happened at the customs office in the western city of Duisburg last Sunday, November 1.

“The break-in was professionally planned and carried out: three as yet unidentified perpetrators used a drill to get to the vault from an adjoining room in the cellar of the building,” said the German police.

Eyewitnesses near the office said they heard drilling in the early hours of the morning and saw three men dressed in dark clothing and dark knit caps taking things out of the office and into a van.

German police have released a photo of the suspects taken by a witness and offered 100,000 euros as a reward for providing information that would lead to their arrest.
