Indre-et-Loire. Two men indicted after the robbery of a postal agency near Tours


They had seized a few tickets before being arrested. Two men were indicted and placed in pre-trial detention this Sunday for theft with a weapon and forcible confinement after the robbery of a Banque Postale agency in Saint-Cyr-sur-Loire, in the suburbs of Tours (Indre-et-Loire ).

The facts took place late Friday afternoon. Three individuals entered after the closure of the agency through the entry of staff, taking advantage of the exit of an employee.

“In possession of an automatic shotgun, an airsoft-type grenade and a knife, they brought together some of the eight people still present (six staff, a trainee and a client) in the bank branch in a small meeting room by relieving them of their cellphones “, indicates the public prosecutor of Tours Grégoire Dulin. “They then attacked the head of the agency by giving him numerous blows of rare violence in order to obtain the opening of the safes and of the cash machine.”

Unsuccessful, the authors then seized some tickets and fled on foot before being arrested, two of them, by three police officers from the BAC.

Already sentenced many times

The accused, aged 45 and 46, come from the Paris region and have already been convicted on numerous occasions, in particular for acts of theft with a weapon.

They were indicted on charges of “theft with a weapon and kidnapping likely to facilitate the commission of a crime”. One of the two was also indicted on the same counts for acts committed this time on November 12, still to the detriment of La Banque Postale. The third alleged perpetrator has fled.

The total incapacity for work of the head of the agency was assessed at ten days by the forensic institute. The investigation was entrusted to the Territorial Directorate of the Judicial Police of Orleans.
