Toni Musulin turns himself in after €11m heist

The driver of an armoured car who made off with its contents worth €11m in Lyon two weeks ago has turned himself into police in Monaco.

“End of the line in Monté Carlo,” reads the front page headline in this morning’s Le Parisien. Toni Musulin has fascinated the French public for the past 11 days since he disappeared with the contents of the armoured vehicle he was driving. The paper gives a snapshot of what internet users are saying upon hearing that Musulin has handed himself in. Many are disappointed – Musulin had become a hero of sorts for many in France after his daring stunt.

Nice Matin publishes exclusive photos of Musulin sporting a beard as he handed himself over to the authorities in Monaco. The paper tries to retrace his activities over the past two weeks since he made off with €11m in Lyon. He spent some of that time in Italy, the paper reports. What’s more, his Ferrari (which he owned before the heist!) was found in Serbia suggesting that Musulin, who was Serbian origins, may have stopped off in his home country.
