Six people were arrested and arrest warrants were issued against nine in connection with a gold heist in Canada a year ago – BBC writes. In April 2023, five billion HUF in gold and several billion HUF in cash were stolen from Toronto's Pearson Airport. Since then, Canadian police have been investigating the case, which they believe is a good fit for Netflix.

The alleged perpetrator, who participated in the robbery as a driver, was arrested in the United States, and dozens of weapons were found in his possession. Five other suspects were arrested in Canada and released on bail. Two of them were employees of the airline that was transporting the gold when it was stolen.

The thieves took 6,500 gold bars from Toronto, which investigators say were melted down and recast. So far, police have only found a small portion of this, with 24 million forints worth of gold found cast into six “roughly made” bracelets. Melting pots and molds were also seized, as well as 110 million Hungarian forints in cash, which police say came from gold sales.

The gold was stolen from a logistics center on April 17, 2023, arriving on an Air Canada flight from Zurich. According to the police, an unknown person entered the section where the gold was stored with a forged document. Nearly 400 kilograms of gold were transported from the site in a truck.

Brink's International, which organized the delivery, sued Air Canada shortly after the theft, claiming the airline did not check the identity of the thieves upon entry. According to the airport, the thieves entered part of the logistics center rented to a third party, so they are not responsible for the loss of goods.
