The Public Security Directorate (PSD) has issued new instructions to those carrying large amounts of cash in public.

A security source at the PSD told citizens to be extra cautious when transferring cash from one location to another, adding that they should notify the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) when they are about to move large amounts of money from one place to another, in order for the CID to provide immediate protection for them, should they need it.

The Kingdom was swept by a series of armed robberies since the beginning of 2018. The robbers had targeted around 15 banks, petrol stations, pharmacies and other stores in Amman and other parts of the country. While the police caught every single robber involved, one bank robber remains at large.
