Mönchengladbach (dpa / lnw) - A trial about an unusual burglary and its expensive consequences begins today in front of the district court in Mönchengladbach. The accused 52-year-old man is said to have broken open the barn door of a warehouse in Erkelenz (Heinsberg district) in order to steal scrap metal and car rims. However, the burglary last November on the premises secured with cameras and motion detectors was noticed.
Two drivers blocked the driveway with their cars and got out. The 52-year-old is said to have driven off and rammed away the cars in which two passengers were still sitting. The women were injured. The booty was worth 260 euros - but the damage is said to have amounted to 15,000 euros. Two more days of negotiations are scheduled for the end of July.
