Unknown persons apparently stole thousands of blank vehicle documents when they broke into the district office of the Berchtesgadener Land in Bad Reichenhall. As the police reported on Thursday, the perpetrator or perpetrators had broken into the registration office of the district office sometime between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. the night before by breaking open a door. Inside, they turned – “probably purposefully,” as the police say – to a safe and a steel cabinet and also broke them open by force. The police estimate the damage to property at around 8,000 euros, while they can only vaguely estimate the value of the loot at “several thousand euros”.
Because this loot consists mainly of real, still uncompleted vehicle papers such as registration certificates and similar documents. These, in turn, are of particular value to people who deal in cars illegally and want to provide stolen vehicles with real papers, for example. The responsible criminal police in Traunstein had traces secured at the crime scene and took over the investigation.
