A 70-year-old Jerusalemite is arrested and charged after he allegedly robbed a post office of NIS 100,000.

According to the indictment, the man entered a post office branch in the Kiryat Yovel neighborhood of the capital to withdraw his monthly pension amount. At the same time, a delivery of cash arrived at the post office.

The man allegedly took advantage of a moment when nobody was looking and made off with NIS 100,000 in cash. When police arrested him a week later, he had only about two-thirds of the amount left in his possession, and said he lost the rest of it gambling.
