Special police units detained a police officer and a narco mafia member after the armed robbery of a bank in Skopje today. An Uni Bank branch in the Kapistec part of Skopje was hit around noon by three armed attackers, during which one of them fired once.

Police officers found bullet proof vests, gloves, hoods and other suspicious items in the car driven by the two. They determined that the drug gang member was supposed to be in house arrest. He comes from a gang operating in the village of Grcec south of Skopje – an area notorious for drug running.
