China News Service, December 3, according to the "Central News Agency" report, in the early morning of the 2nd local time, a robbery occurred in a branch of a Brazilian bank in the city of Carmeta in the northern Brazilian state of Pará. However, one hostage was killed.
According to reports, Cameta is about 235 kilometers from Belém, the capital of the state of Pará.
This time, at least 10 criminals were involved in the robbery of the Brazilian bank branch located in the city council building.
The robbery started at midnight and lasted about 1 hour and 30 minutes. The gang held local residents as a human wall and attacked the local police station, resulting in the death of a hostage.
The criminals used heavy weapons and explosives during the crime, and then used cars and ships to escape.
The governor of Pará State Barbaro stated that the gangsters had misplaced the safe and did not succeed in the robbery.
A suspect was arrested for providing logistic support to the bandit group.
According to reports, the actions of this criminal group have many similarities with the largest robbery case in the state history that occurred in Crissium, Santa Catarina on December 1.
The robbery in Crissiouma was a criminal group composed of at least 30 people who robbed a Brazilian bank branch after attacking the local police station.
According to an investigation by the Pará State Department of Public Security, two similar robberies occurred in 2020, and almost all persons involved were arrested.
From 2017 to 2020, there were 51 robberies of this type in the state of Para, which usually occurred in small and medium-sized cities with fewer police forces.
