Police believe second suspect in 1-million-euro Larissa robbery also prison escapee

Police believe that the second man involved in an armed robbery that netted 1 million euros in Larissa, central Greece, on Thursday is also a fugitive from Trikala prison.

Officers had already found the fingerprints of one of the suspects at the bank that was raided. They identified him as Klement Kala, one of 11 men who broke out of jail in Trikala, central Greece, in April. Now police believe the other man with him was 42-year-old Admir Murataj. Neither of the robbers had covered their faces during the raid.

The two men were arrested in January on suspicion of being part of a gang that had carried out nine robberies, netting some 2 million euros.

Police caught one of the 11 fugitives, Ermal Leta, earlier this month.
