The robbers may have gotten a hold of as much as between NOK 60 and 100 million (USD 8.8 to 14.7 million). According to the Norwegian paper VG, the last record was of NOK 30 million (USD 4.4 million).

Several persons with contacts to the criminal environment said, independently of each other said to the Norwegian paper Dagbladet, that the robbers got away with approximately NOK 100 million (USD 14.7 million) from the robbery in Stavanger. According to the paper, the sources stated that they have gotten a hold of this information from people who had knowledge of the planning and the carrying out of actual robbery.

Neither the police nor Norsk Kontantservice wants to comment on the amount, but they reject that the robbers got a hold of as much money as previously mentioned.

VG wrote Tuesday that the robbers got a hold of NOK 60 million (USD 8.8 million). VG states that they obtained this information by studying the video surveillance tapes from the robbery. According to the paper, the robbers filled at least six bags with cash, and the paper claims that each bag can hold about NOK 10 million (USD 1.47 million).

The police informed recently that the robbers did not only take Norwegian money, but also foreign currencies like American dollars, euro, Swedish and Danish krone.
