Multimillion gold heist from Curacao boat

WILLEMSTAD, Curacao — Armed men dressed as police boarded a fishing boat Friday in Curacao and stole about 70 gold bars worth an estimated $11.5 million, police in the southern Caribbean island said.

The boat’s captain was struck in the head in the early-morning assault before the thieves made off with the gold in three cars, police spokesman Reggie Huggins said. Authorities believe there were six men involved in the heist. No suspects are in custody.
