At the end of September, the Düsseldorf regional court was dealing with a delicate case. A district savings bank is suing an insurance company for reimbursement of almost one million euros that was stolen during a burglary. However, the insurance company has considerable doubts about this representation.
Almost one million euros have disappeared from the vault of a branch of the Düsseldorfer Kreissparkasse. This emerges from a legal dispute pending at the Düsseldorf district court, to which the court has pointed out. The district savings bank would like their insurance company to reimburse them for the missing amount, but they refuse. The case is scheduled to appear in court on September 29. It is about exactly 934,000 euros.
The money was delivered on June 26, 2019 by a value transporter in Erkrath, it is said. A few hours later it was gone. While the district savings bank argues that it was a burglary and that there are corresponding traces, the defendant insurance company denies this. The question of whether the sum must be reimbursed depends on this.
The district savings bank did not want to comment on the case when asked by the dpa. It is an "ongoing process". The defendant provincial insurance also referred to the pending legal dispute.
A spokeswoman for the Wuppertal public prosecutor's office said three suspects had been investigated for particularly serious theft. There had been searches and data from mobile phones had been evaluated. However, the suspicion was not confirmed. One of the suspects also had an alibi. The investigations against the suspects were eventually dropped. The police in Mettmann confirmed that there was an operation at the time, but no press release.
