The Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) says a suspect has been arrested with a large number of gold items, similar to the gold items stolen from the Colombo National Museum in March.

Presenting a report when the museum robbery case was taken up at the Colombo Magistrate’s Court today (30), the CCD revealed that no other suspect has been arrested in connection to the incident and that so far none of the stolen items have been recovered.

Chief magistrate Rashmi Singappuli instructed the CCD to inform the court after they ascertain that the arrested suspect connectedto the incident or if the gold items are infact the items stolen from the museum.

The case was subsequently postponed to August 13.

The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) are conducting separate investigations into the incident.

The CID had also informed court on a previous occasion that no arrests have been made in connection to the robbery.
