Masked gunmen storm government warehouse

Three masked gunmen stormed the government warehouse at Faux a Chaux this afternoon, creating a wave of panic among staff.

The incident occurred at about 3:30 PM, according to reports.

Sources told the Times that after overpowering a Security Guard, two of the masked gunmen entered the building while the third stood outside.

The two inside held up staff, demanded cash, and along with their companion outside, made off with an undisclosed sum of money.
