HK police arrest 4 Colombians in bank heist

Hong Kong police have arrested four Colombian citizens suspected in a $500,000 bank heist.
Police Superintendent Leung Ka-ming says the men broke into nine safe deposit boxes in a Bank of East Asia branch last Thursday and took about 4 million Hong Kong dollars (US$515,735) in cash and valuables.
Leung says police recovered HK$1.2 million (US$154,700) worth of items in a raid Tuesday on several hotel rooms.
Authorities have yet to file formal burglary charges against the men.
Leung says the suspects arrived in Hong Kong in February. Police are working with Interpol to determine whether they have criminal backgrounds.
