On Thursday, a man and a woman were arrested in connection to a multi-million dollar heist at a security depot in England, CNN reports.

According to a police statement released today, a 29-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman were arrested by detectives from the Kent police’s serious and major crimes division, CNN reports.  Both are from the London area.

On Wednesday an armed band of robbers stole at least 25 million pounds (roughly $44 million) from a security depot in Kent, England. The depot’s manager and his wife and child were abducted and threatened until the manager helped the robbers enter the depot, CNN reports.

“The arrests at this stage are significant,” Adrian Leppard, assistant chief constable, told CNN.

Securitas, a security firm that owns the depot, has offered a reward of as much as $3.5 million for information that leads to the recovery of the stolen cash, according to CNN.
