“Millionaire” raid on Guimarães shopping centre

Four masked armed men burst into a shopping centre in Guimarães early on Sunday morning, surprising security guards as they prepared to load money from Continente supermarket into an armored truck.

According to reports, the men escaped with “tens of thousands of euros” collected over the week’s busiest shopping day (Saturday).

Different news sources give differing accounts, but the essence of the story is that security guards offered no resistance.

The attackers are described as being armed with a shotgun and iron bar.

PJ police are investigating.
