Crime: No witnesses yet after gold theft from museum

After the spectacular theft of gold from the Celtic-Roman Museum in Manching, the investigators have not yet received any concrete information about possible perpetrators. A spokesman for the Bavarian State Criminal Police Office said on Thursday morning that no witnesses had come forward who could report anything. There are also no new investigation approaches.

According to the previous investigations, the unknown perpetrators only needed nine minutes to break into the museum on Tuesday night and steal valuable gold coins there. At that time, the telephone network in the Ingolstadt suburb was also sabotaged. As a result, the telephone, internet and alarm system at the Manching Museum were paralysed. The investigators assume that the burglars destroyed the telecom lines in order to then get into the museum undisturbed. Museum staff only noticed the crime the next morning.

483 coins and a gold cast cake were stolen in the burglary. The Celtic gold coins, more than two thousand years old, were discovered in Manching in 1999. The pure material value of the 3.7-kilo treasure is estimated at around a quarter of a million euros, but the commercial value of the historical coins is in the millions.
