A 59-year-old man has been remanded in custody for four weeks in relation to the aggravated robbery of the Etterstad post office in Oslo in May.
The man was extradited from Sweden to Norway via a Nordic arrest warrant, the newspaper Avisa Oslo writes. He appeared in Oslo District Court on Tuesday.
The man will now be in custody for four weeks. The 59-year-old is one of three men charged after the robbery, all of whom have a Turkish background. Two of them have Swedish citizenship.
On Saturday, May 22 of this year, three perpetrators carried out an aggravated robbery of the post office. They had a pistol during the robbery, and the employees at the post office were handcuffed. On August 13, the Oslo police stated that three people had been arrested.
All are currently charged with aggravated robbery.
The police informed the newspaper that one of the other two accused must serve a short sentence in Sweden before being extradited to Norway. The other man is expected to be extradited to Norway on Friday.
