BAVARIA: A group of thieves stole a number of Celtic era gold coins worth 1.6 million euros (RM7.6 million) from a museum in Germany.
The BBC reported that hundreds of gold coins were stolen from a museum in Manching, Bavaria at midnight yesterday in a nine-minute raid.
According to the authorities, the group of thieves sabotaged the museum’s alarm system before breaking in, in addition to witnessing that the internet cable was also cut, causing a line disruption.
The police are currently investigating if the group of thieves is related to several previous theft cases.
The museum staff found shards of broken glass on the floor and found the coin missing the next day.
Head of Collections at the German National Archaeological Collection, Rupert Gebhard said the loss was very sad, like losing an ‘old friend’.
In addition, a second storage container that housed a number of old coins was also broken into and stolen by the criminal group.
The authorities suspect that the criminal group involved in the case was involved in several previous cases.
In 2017, a number of gold coins weighing 100 kilograms were stolen from a museum in Berlin.
Two years later, a group of thieves made off with 21 accessories and other valuables in an incident at the Dresden Green Vault Museum.
