German police arrest 2 suspects in gold coin heist
    2017-July-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

GERMAN special police units raided several homes in Berlin early yesterday in connection with the brazen heist of a 100-kilogram Canadian gold coin stolen from one of the city’s most famous museums earlier this year.

Heavily-armed masked police arrested at least two suspects, one wearing a hood over his head, during early morning raids in the city’s Neukoelln neighborhood.

“We assume that the two suspects match the ones seen on the video footage from surveillance cameras” during the burglary, police spokesman Winfrid Wenzel told reporters.

He said searches of the apartments were still continuing, but so far the coin hadn’t been found. Experts think the coin may have been melted down to cash in on the gold, Wenzel added.

The Canadian “Big Maple Leaf” coin, worth several million U.S. dollars, was stolen from the Bode museum in March.

At least two burglars broke into the museum at night, using a ladder to climb to a window from elevated railway tracks. They grabbed the coin, loaded it onto a wheelbarrow and then carted it out of the building and along the tracks across the Spree river before descending into a park on a rope and fleeing in a getaway car.(SD-Agencies)
