The Greek police counter-terrorism unit located and arrested two of the three people said to be involved in a bank robbery in Distomo last August, during a special operation held on Friday afternoon in Nea Anchialos, Volos, Central Greece.
Georgios Petrakakos, Spyridon Christodoulou and Spyridon Dravillas are the three men identified as the bank robbers.
Christodoulou and Petrakakos did not resist arrest after police invaded their hideout while Dravillas refused to surrender and committed suicide with an AK-47 assault rifle.
The Distomo bank robbery suspects have allegedly cooperated with infamous terrorist Nikos Maziotis and runaway convict Vassilis Paleokostas. Dravillas was specifically the one who helped Paleokostas escape from Korydallos prison Hollywood-style by helicopter.
According to investigations, the three robbers, using one of the cars found in their courtyard, visited their next potential target area, a village near Larissa.
The Distomo criminals had also robbed banks in Farkadona and Ampelonas last month and they are indicted for a total of 24 robberies that have gained them over one million euros.
Three cars and several weapons were found inside the house.
