“The Police Were Only Five Minutes Too Late”

But aren’t they always five minutes too late?

Dresden

What do you expect from a country like Germany? Anybody can walk in over the border as they please. Now you can even walk out of a highly secure German museum with stolen jewelry and nobody cares either.

Thieves in the German city of Dresden have broken into one of Europe’s largest collections of art treasures, making off with three sets of 18th-century jewellery of “immeasurable worth” in what German media has described as the biggest such theft since the second world war.

The dramatic heist took place at dawn on Monday, after a fire broke out at an electrical distribution point nearby, deactivating the museum’s alarm and plunging the area into darkness.

Polizei nur fünf Minuten zu spät.

  1. What? Whitey Bulger is back from the grave! It is speculated that one of the crews belonging to the late New England crime boss stole “priceless” paintings out of Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardener museum, some 30 years ago. Also don’t forget the Lufthansa heist at New York’s JFK airport. 6 Million in cash was stolen: at the time, a record.
