18 December 2012, 10:37

Two women have been released on bail after £1.2million pounds was stolen in a robbery on a security van outside a Felixstowe bank in 1993.

The 47 year old and 64 year old women, both from Eastbourne in East Sussex were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to steal and assisting an offender.

It's after a £1.2 million pounds was taken from a security van outside the Lloyds Bank in Hamilton Road in Felixstowe almost 20 years ago.

Former security guard 57-year-old Eddie Maher was arrested in America earlier this year.  He's in custody and denies theft.

He is due to stand trial at Ipswich Crown Court in March next year.
