article imageArmed Robbers Leave City Of Gothenburg In A State Of Chaos

By KJ Mullins     Jan 22, 2008 in Crime
Gothenburg, Sweden was the scene of a very sophisticated robbery on Tuesday. Armed robbers attacked the main post office and left a wave of confusion that almost completely paralysed the city.
At least five fake bombs were left behind, three of which were in front of the main police station. The robbers also set fire to several cars and spread spikes on roadways to puncture the tires of anyone trying to pursue them.
No one was harmed in the heist at the post office but the actions of the robbers left the city in a state of chaos.
"We have never before experienced anything as spectacular, where they have tried to hinder the police and create public confusion," Gothenburg Police Commissioner Krister Jacobsson was quoted as saying by Swedish news agency TT.
Al Gore was due to visit Gothenburg to collect a prize for his work during all of the chaos. That visit should still be able to take place according to the organiser of the event.
