London police foil cyber bank robbers

Police said it is not yet not clear if any money was taken from the bank before the arrests were made

Associated Press

LONDON — London police say they have arrested 12 men involved in an "audacious" attempt to take control of a bank's computer in order to rob the institution.

Police said Friday the men are accused of using a specially outfitted computer inside a Santander bank branch to seize control of the bank's computer systems.

The 12 suspects range in age from 23 to 50. Police said they had prevented a "multi-million pound" loss from the Santander branch at the Surrey Quays shopping center.

Police said it is not yet not clear if any money was taken from the bank before the arrests were made. Searches were being carried out in six different locations in the greater London area.
