Unknown robbers stole over six million rubles (about $200,000) from a circus in the city of Vladivostok in Russia's Far East, a local police spokesman said on Tuesday.
"The money was stolen on late Sunday night. Unknown suspects entered the circus building through a window and broke open a safe that contained over six million rubles," the spokesman said.
The cash was revenue earned by the circus from its performances over the New Year and Christmas holidays.
If the robbers are caught, they face up to six years in prison, the spokesman added.
