Three charged with bank computer thefts - the Register

The Register, a UK Internet news service, reports that three people have been charged with burglary following the arrest of eleven men suspected of stealing computer hardware from City banks.

City of London and Metropolitan Police officers are still questioning suspects in relation to robberies at five major banks in the City and a host of Internet firms, says the Register. During a string of raids, computer equipment worth an estimated £15 million has been stolen, much of it in the form of processors and memory from Sun servers, the report states.

Police are believed to be questioning the men about a break-in at Deutsche Bank on 23 November where 49 pieces of equipment believed to be worth £1.6 million were stolen. The Register alleges that the bank lost a further £25 million in business due to the disruption.
