Police arrest alleged accomplice of “robber of the century”


Police have arrested the alleged partner-in-crime of “robber of the century” František Procházka. His accomplice, Milan Čermák, was sentenced to nine years in prison and is set to appeal the decision next week. Police arrested the accomplice near his house in the Mladá Boleslav; the court had ordered the arrest a week before his case goes into appeal on the grounds that he might try to escape the country, officials said Friday. Čermák and Procházka were sentence in January of this year. Procházka, who was sentenced for stealing over half a billion crowns from his employer, a security agency, disappeared in 2007.
