Leads Found In JAL Case

A Moscow investigator said police are pursuing some leads concerning the recent $46, 000 robbery of the Japan Airlines offices on Kuznetsky Most.


Pyotr Primakov, deputy chief of Police Station 17, said that he suspected that professionals were involved in the robbery. Thieves broke into the office between midnight Nov. 26 and early Nov. 27, used welding equipment to open the safe and made off with the cash, Primakov said.


Makoto lijima, administrative manager for the airline, said, "Ordinarily we don't keep much cash in the office".


The break-in was the second for the airline office in the past four years, he said.
