Jewish Gold Dealer Escapes Robbers En Route From Holland To Belgium

Driving from Holland toward Antwerp, the dealer noticed that a car was following him, but didn't give it much thought.

It was a miracle en route to Antwerp: A gold dealer who lives in Antwerp, Belgium, was traveling in his car last Wednesday as he does every week, with a very large amount of gold in his case, B’Hadrei Haredim reported.

Driving from Holland toward Antwerp, the dealer noticed that a car was following him, but didn’t give it much thought.

He made a stop at a gas station along the highway to fill up his tank.

After he started driving about 300 meters out of the gas station, a car with blue lights ordered him to pull over. Three armed assailants got out of the car with their guns pointing at him.

The driver sped backwards into the gas station, got out of the car, grabbed his case from the back seat and ran into the store at the service station.

He shouted, “There is a robbery here!” and the shop owner immediately locked the doors and pressed an emergency alarm button. The shop was full of people at the time and the three unmasked bandits arrived on the scene within a short time brandishing their weapons.

They demanded that the owner open the doors and that the case with the gold be handed over to them. Police arrived on the scene shortly thereafter, but the criminals managed to escape.

After a thorough search, the bandits’ car was found abandoned. It had been reported stolen.

The main highway was closed due to the incident and there were traffic jams reported over the next six hours.

The Jewish man noted that when he was being interrogated by the police, he was asked if he hadn’t notice being shot at and he answered that he hadn’t. The police then showed him that the lower portion of the hood of his car had been hit by a few bullets. Apparently, the criminals used a silencer on their guns and he hadn’t realized his car had been hit.

On Shabbat, the man got an aliyah in shul and benched gomel.

    I'm glad he escaped, but what was he doing transporting such valuables in an ordinary vehicle? That is what armored trucks are for!

  2. Edward Lobel says:

    Charlie, most important valuables are shipped by ordinary means. FYI diamonds are usually shipped bu regular U.S. mail. the chance of a piece of mail being stolen or lost is so small it is worht the risk.

    I am just waitng for all the right wing crazzies to blame Obama for the thieft (LOL)

    " FYI diamonds are usually shipped bu regular U.S. mail."

    I thought they were sent by registered mail. That is how Harry Winston sent the Hope Diamond from New York to the Smithsonian.

  4. If the package is sent by registered mail, and insured for value, the Postal Service then has to protect it accordingly. They have their own police force to use if they need to.
