Professional non-ferrous metal thieves stole almost eight tons of copper cable from Deutsche Bahn in the Rostock region and wanted to make money in Berlin. As a spokesman for the federal police said on Wednesday, the cables stolen in Rostock over the weekend turned up at a scrap dealer in Berlin on Monday. A witness observed how a man unloaded the load with three drums with copper cable and other pieces of cable there.

When the alarmed Berlin police checked, the scrap dealer said that the supplier wanted to sell the material to the scrap dealer. For this purpose, he presented a copy of an identity document. However, the operator of the scrap trade refused and asked for an original ID card. The “unloader” then drove off, but did not come back.
