Thousands of customers will need to wait longer for their deliveries after an armed robbery at a distribution centre in Waalwijk on Sunday, reports NOS.

Each day the popular online store normally sends out tens of thousands of packages, but logistics are reportedly currently at a standstill while an investigation goes on.

On Sunday, several armed robbers entered the building, threatened two security guards and only hours later was the alarm raised. Nobody was injured but police said that the thieves got away.

Police have asked for any witnesses to get in contact with them.
