His partner Deborah Brett, 47, and his sister Margaret Francis, 64, were detained by police officers in Eastbourne on suspicion of conspiracy to steal and assisting an offender.

The theft, which Maher has denied, occurred outside Lloyds Bank in Hamilton Road, Felixstowe.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Constabulary said: “Two women have been arrested this morning, Tuesday 18 December in connection with the investigation into a security van theft outside Lloyds Bank, Hamilton Road, Felixstowe in 1993.

“The 47-year-old and 64-year-old women, both from Eastbourne in East Sussex have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to steal and assisting an offender.

“The women were arrested by Suffolk Police officers in Eastbourne and are currently being held in custody at Eastbourne custody investigation suite.”

Maher was extradited from the US in July after being arrested in Ozark, Missouri, in February.

He is due to stand trial at Ipswich Crown Court in March.
