Heist: Three women held in Hunt
by Richard White, Mike Sullivan, and Tony Bonnici

THREE women have been arrested over the £53million Tonbridge heist, it was revealed last night.

It is believed a mother and her two daughters were held in raids at two houses.

One of them is said to be a friend of cage fighter Lee Murray, who is on the run.

The women are being held in connection with money laundering and handling stolen property.

Cops swooped at 1am yesterday in Thamesmead, near Woolwich, South East London.

One house was empty but a woman was arrested five hours later as she arrived home.

A neighbour said: “There must have been at least ten cops.

“There was a lot of noise as they smashed down the door and windows.”

A Kent Police spokesman said last night: “Officers investigating the Tonbridge Securitas robbery arrested three women in London for money laundering and handling stolen property.”

Forensic teams spent yesterday searching one of the houses before boarding it up.

Kickboxer Murray, 28, rented the car salvage yard in Welling, Kent, where £7m from the record robbery was found. He and a business pal were first thought to have fled to South America.

But Murray — who was stabbed in a bloody fight after a celebrity-filled West End party last year — is now thought to have returned to Europe.

Cops have arrested 21 people so far and charged five.

They are still looking for £33million.
