A man pretending to be a security company worker stole more than $1 million from the Athens airport branch of Greece’s Alpha bank.

Police say the suspect arrived at the branch Sunday on the pretense of examining its security system.

He then took out a gun and forced employees to open the vault, making off with more than $1 million in cash.

Police say they have security camera footage of someone, matching the suspect’s description, fleeing in a taxi.
