This is the fifth such robbery since the jeweler’s handover. According to t-online information, after last year’s theft, he asked the city for permission to build a bollard system in front of the entrance. However, this has not yet been approved by the city.
Leipzig: Police are looking for witnesses – and a blue Passat
The police are now looking for witnesses to the crime. “Many traces have been secured at the scene. Parts of the vehicle and an L-EA 1908 license plate, which was attached to the VW, were also found in the store,” Benndorf said. However, the license plates did not belong to the VW, but were stolen from another car.
The police also had a lead on the murderous vehicle: “Between July 30, 8:50 a.m. and July 31, 8:15 p.m., a blue VW Passat was stolen on Hohlbeinstrasse at number 33a”, specified the spokesperson of the police. The official L-BO 214 number plates were attached to it. “Whether this is the vehicle of the crime is under investigation,” Benndorf told t-online.
However, the police are urgently looking for witnesses who made observations on suspicious people on Hohlbeinstrasse over the weekend in connection with the stolen VW Passat.
Leipzig: Perpetrators probably planned to escape via Clara Zetkin Park and sawed off bollards as a precaution
Another clue should be noted: in the area of Schleußiger Weg and Nonnenweg, i.e. at the southern end of the Clara-Zetkin-Park, bollards have been sawed off, as well as in the Pistoriusstraße at number 71 of the House.
The police suspect the perpetrators of having used the road crossing the park as an escape route. She therefore asks the population: “Who saw a vehicle registered L-EA 1908 before the crime? Who can make statements about the sawed terminals and the people observed? »
Witnesses who can provide information about unknown suspects or the facts of the case should contact the Criminal Police, Dimitroffstrasse 1 or by calling 0341-96 64 66 66.
