Two men remain on the run after breaking into a building in Tokyo’s Shinjuku Ward and stealing 35 million yen in cash from an office, police said Thursday.

At around 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday, the two men managed to break into the office of the Tokyo Ryugaku (Study Abroad) Support Center located inside a multi-tenant building, Fuji TV reported. They tied a male Chinese employee to a chair and made away with 35 million yen in cash in a bag that had just been delivered to the office.

The two suspects were described as being Chinese and in their 20s or 30s.

As easy as it sounds, it's an inside job! You don't a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.

Inside job!

Why on earth would a study abroad office receive a bag of 35 million cash? Is it a money laundering front?

It looks like an inside job! Chinese stealing from a Chinese in a foreign country!

All pre-organised! The money had only just been delivered to the office and these two Chinese show up to rob the place while another Chinese is there alone? Furthermore, why would any company need $350,000 in cash on the premises? The whole situation stinks as a set up. The money is probably already "on a slow boat to China".

Some people are saying it was preorganised and possibly even set up in advance
