Yes, there is a 100kg gold coin. Yes, it was stolen (4 guys with a wheelbarrow … srsly)
A wheelbarrow, rope and ladder (who need high tech?) say prosecutors in the trial of the four men.
- 100 kg Canadian "Big Maple Leaf"
- apparently since melted down
- stolen from the Bode Museum in Berlin in March of 2017
Prosecutors say three of the suspects broke into the museum through an upstairs window and used a ladder, wheelbarrow and rope to extract the coin from a bullet-proof glass. The fourth suspect was a museum guard accused of helping them.
Here is the newspaper report for more (don't go getting any ideas, K?)
Grainy security camera footage is so hard to make out sometimes.
