Veghel, Uden, Sint Hubert – Recently, the police have been receiving reports of robberies by fake agents. Truck drivers of foreign origin are stopped and money is stolen under threat. The detective is investigating the cases.

A foreign driver of a car ambulance was stopped on the Hapseweg in Sint Hubert around 1 p.m. last Wednesday. A light-colored BMW pulled up next to the driver and a sign saying ‘Stop Polizei’ was shown by fake cops. The officers did not wear uniforms, but in some cases showed a suspected fake police pass. After the driver stopped, the fake cop asked for drugs and money. The victim said he had no drugs but money. The man wanted to go to the nearest police station to continue talking, but at that moment the fake officer pulled out a gun. Under threat of this, the victim handed over thousands of euros. The fake agents then left in an unknown direction.

On Wednesday, March 15, we have now received a total of 5 reports. There were 4 in the Veghel/Uden region, where car dealers were stopped by fake agents and tens of thousands of euros were captured. The police suspect that these robberies were carried out by the same group.

The description of one of the fake agents:
– Sturdy posture;
– Light hair color;
– 170cm/ 175cm tall;
– White skin color;
– Mouth mask (corona mask) on;
– Transparent gloves (as available at gas station);

The detective therefore wants to warn everyone who goes out and is stopped. When in doubt, always ask for the identification of the police officer and immediately call 112 if it is not correct.
