A plumber called Hugh Doyle has been named in the media as one of the suspects arrested as part of the investigation into the Hatton Garden jewellery heist.
Police are still searching homes in Enfield in north London, where Mr Doyle was arrested.
The Press Association is reporting that Mr Doyle’s neighbours expressed shock about his alleged involvement.
They said he has an interest in flying, seemed a ‘really nice guy.’
One woman who lives near his home in Riverside Gardens, Enfield, said:
‘He was a really friendly and helpful chap, the type of guy you could rely on.
We’re all friendly with each other in this neighbourhood and it’s left us shocked and unsettled.
Another neighbour described Doyle as ‘a bit flash’, while a local business owner who worked nearby said Doyle often came into his shop to chat.
He said: ‘He was the last person you would expect to be accused of something like that.’
Nine men are currently in custody after police carried out raids across London and Kent.
They’re all described as white British men, aged between 43 and 76.
The oldest suspect has been identified in the media Brian Reader, who was arrested along with his 50-year old son.
The Met Police have not confirmed the identity of any of the men they’ve arrested and detained for questioning.
Scotland Yard said on Monday that they’d found ‘high value items’ that they believe had been stolen in the Easter Holiday weekend raid.
The thieves broke into the vault situated in the basement and stole millions of pounds worth of jewellery and cash.[tweet https://twitter.com/pressassoc/status/600963953406017536]
