Bakery in the Vorstadt broken into

A bakery in the “Vorstadt” was broken into at around half past ten last Saturday night (6th April, 2013).

However the strange noises coming from the bakery caught the attention of one of the neighbours, who went out into his garden and saw the three thieves coming out of the back door of the backery.  When they noticed him, they fled.

According to police, two of them ran off but one hid between parts of the building.  Another neighbour found him and between them the two witnesses were able to hold onto him until the police arrived.

On inspecting the building the police discovered that the door to the bakery had been forced open, as had a safe inside the building.  The damage is estimated at around €500, although it is believed that nothing had been taken.

The instrument believed to have been used to force the door open was later found in the garden and the search for the two accomplices continues.
