There have been a number of robberies on money transporters in Berlin in recent years. In February, strangers struck in front of a supermarket in the Neukölln district and stole money. They escaped on scooters.
A robbery of a money transporter in front of a bank branch on Berlin's Ku'damm in 2021 was spectacular: the perpetrators wore orange garbage man clothing and stole almost 650,000 euros. The court sentenced a man to seven years in prison, but four of the perpetrators have not yet been identified.
