Thieves disappeared with coins in 9 minutes
The cunningness with which the thieves have executed this theft is even more surprising. According to the police, hundreds of these valuable coins were kept under tight security in the museum located in Manching, Bavaria and the thieves got away with them in just 9 minutes.
The thieves disabled the alarm system there before entering the museum. For this, the nearby internet cable was cut, so that the alarm did not ring at the time of entry and by the time the staff present there understood something, people had fled. The police is trying to ascertain whether this theft is related to any raid that took place earlier.
Theft recorded in the security system
The alarm didn’t go off when the thief entered because the cable was cut. However, despite this, the recording was being done in the security system. Employees working at the museum discovered the theft when they arrived the next morning and found shards of broken glass on the floor. They found that the gold coins kept there were missing.
suspected organized gang
Explaining the theft to the media, the head of the state archeology archive said that it seems like an old friend has been lost. Officials suspect that an organized gang is behind the theft. The police are trying to trace the thieves by linking them with the previous thefts.
When thieves made away with 100 kg gold coins
Incidents of stealing from the museum have happened in the past as well. In the year 2017, there was a big theft in the Berlin Museum when thieves took out 100 kg of gold coins. Two years later, thieves made a dramatic clean-up of 21 jewels and other valuables from the Green Vault Museum in Dresden. This theft was recorded in CCTV. However, police have said they cannot say with certainty whether there is a connection between the thefts.
