Police report on carnival positive

Oberursel’s police have reported that considering the 10,000 people lining the route of the carnival procession on Sunday, they had relatively little to do.

5 people were ordered to leave the area, although one of them became violent and was taken into custody.

5 children were re-united with their parents.

However shortly before the carnival started, the building used by the carnival club “Frohsinn” was broken into.  The thieves forced the entrance door open before heading for the machines.  They also forced open a metal grill that serves as a door to the upper floor.

It is not known how much was taken, but the damage caused is estimated to be around €1,500.
