MASKED gunmen repeatedly fired shots after they ambushed an armoured van carrying up to $4 million from inside a Sydney security depot, in what is believed to be the nation’s biggest such hold-up.

Police are investigating whether the gang may have had inside help as the hold-up at Lane Cove is the second on a Chubb van on the city’s north shore. Bandits stole up to $2 million in a similar heist in North Sydney in February.
