A 25-year-old cash transporter from Waddinxveen is suspected of stealing at least 100 thousand euros from an airline. He was arrested on May 10th, the Koninklijke Marechaussee - a policing force that works as a branch of the Dutch military and is responsible for airport security - announced on Thursday. The Marechaussee officers found a large amount in cash on the man upon his arrest. Officers searched his house and found "several tens of thousands of euros", according to the Marechaussee.
