Three weeks before the burglary in the Dresden Green Vault in November 2019, one of the alleged perpetrators from the Berlin Remmo clan is said to have tried to break into a bank branch in Berlin-Wedding.

The incident was not previously known, the police had not reported the attempted bank burglary at the time. But now the case at the Dresden Regional Court came up, where six men from the notorious Berlin Remmo clan are accused of stealing jewelry from the museum.

Two Berlin officials testified in court. According to this, the DNA trace of a 23-year-old Remmo sprout was found at the crime scene on Müllerstraße, who is now accused of breaking in and stealing the Sachsen jewelry.

On November 4, 2019, around three perpetrators opened a window grille on the back of the building and smashed the window to enter the rooms of a travel bank, investigators say.

When two employees who were still in the store heard the noise, they fled the front entrance and called the police. The window bars are said to have been severed and prepared before the robbery, as was later the case when the Dresden museum was broken into. Prosecutors are convinced that the 23-year-old was one of the perpetrators. “We are considering filing supplementary charges against him,” said senior public prosecutor Matthias Almang on the sidelines of the hearing. Then the man would also have to answer for it in the ongoing process.

The public prosecutor’s office accuses him and five relatives between the ages of 23 and 28 of serious gang theft, arson and particularly serious arson. They come from the Berlin Remmo family of Arabic origin.

Again and again, young members of the clan are conspicuous with serious crimes – in addition to drug and violent crimes, also robberies of money transporters, burglaries in banks or in museums, such as the theft of the Big Maple Leaf gold coin from Berlin’s Bode Museum in 2017.
