Burglar caught

Detectives in Bad Homburg have caught a man who they believe is responsible for 25 break-ins in Oberursel in the past six months.

The 27-year-old who lives in the town is accused of earning a living through the break-ins.  He is believed to be responsible for, amongst others, the Volkshochschule (October), Primary School “Mitte” (October), the library, (December), the Kindergarten “Waldzwerge” (December and February), Brauhaus Oberursel (December, January, February), the Kindergarten “Regenbogenland” (March), the Kindergarten “St.Ursula” (January and February), as well as a number of other shops, restaurants and clubhouses.

The suspect has told police that he carried out the crimes alone, but the investigation is ongoing.
