The New York Times has an article about a hoard of gold Celtic coins stolen from the Celtic and Roman Museum in Manching, Bavaria, Germany.  

https://www.nytimes.com/2022/11/23/world/europe/germany-gold-coins-theft.html

The gold value alone is said to be 250,000 euros. Of course, the numismatic value is far more, but not so easy to realize.

24 minutes ago, camll.m. said:

The organized crime in Germany is run by Lebanese/Turkish family clans that burgled the German Museum in Berlin and the palace museum in Dresden.

According to German press releases this crime on Manching is another outbreak of clan criminality since the alarm system of the museum was shut down by sabotaging the central electric distribution station of the entire city (!) that then suffered from a full black out. Germany is on the best way to slip into a third world environment at least in security terms! 🥲

Right. Native-born Germans would never engage in massive theft and other criminality!

That may be partly correct, but his conclusion: "Germany is on the best way to slip into a third world environment at least in security terms!" shows IMHO from which political camp this person comes. 

The fact, for example, that the number of robberies in the last 10 years in Germany has fallen continuously to half (see Statista), is completely ignored.

The post  sounds to me like someone who wants to stir up hatred and fear.

@Tejas, as you probably realized, I was making a sarcastic historical rejoinder to a particular comment, with reference to the largest mass theft of personal property in the 20th century. I was not editorializing on the situation today.
