Armed robbers snatch fake gold bars from Money Museum
WILLEMSTAD - Two armed robbers stole gold bars from the Curaçao money museum Yotin Korta in Willemstad on Wednesday. Their loot turned out not to be worth as much as they presumably hoped – the museum announced that the stolen gold bars are worthless fakes, the Central Bank reports.
The two armed assailants forced the doors of the museum open and grabbed the two gold bars. Two employees that were inside managed to escape the property unharmed. Luckily, no visitors were in the museum at the time of the robbery.
The museum is part of the central bank for both the island of Curaçao and Saint Maarten.
