Priceless treasures stolen in castle vault heist in Germany

Priceless treasures stolen in castle vault heist in Germany 1

 

Thieves have stolen around 100 pieces of priceless treasure in an audacious heist from a castle vault in the German city of Dresden.
Several criminals gained access to the Green Vault, one of the largest collections of masterpieces in Europe, lifting artifacts of "immeasurable value," according to Roland Woeller, a local politician.
The vault features an astounding collection of historical jewelry and precious ornaments — from shimmering bowls carved out of crystal and agate to jeweled figurines and goblets fashioned from gilded ostrich eggs.
One of the most famous pieces of the collection, a 41-carat green diamond known as the Dresden Green, was not in the museum at the time. It is currently on loan to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

  1. Damn !! Someone made off with the motherlode 🏦💰🤙🏼

  2. I’m just wondering where all the money went that was fundraised for the Haitians after their earthquake?

  3. Some body saw rick and morty and got inspired.

  4. terrible for history to be ripped away.

  5. Some Russian oligarch’s mistress will be having a very merry christmas this year.

  6. Priceless jewels, 7-11 security…

  7. This was an inside job, or the thieves had been scouting this place for a while. Whoever stole these jewels probably already had a buyer for them.

      Your smarter than the reporter…

    • Or the items will be disassembled, molten down and the gems sold seperately. Seeing how they went about it makes this scenario likely.

    • monokoi

      Thats the most likely thing to happen. You really cant sell these items to anyone but somebody who just wants them to have it in their own vault and never show it to anybody. Any effort to sell these pieces even on the illegal market will result in arrest.

      We have many Arabian family and immigrant-mafia in Germany. I would not be shocked if one of the paters wanted them

  8. These peeps are pretty amazed that an axe can smash things?🤨

    If they are deemed “Priceless” does that mean they cannot be sold even with a lower than priceless bidder?🤨

  9. Millions and millions worth of jewels and they couldn’t hire a security guard or two?

    • tfcooks

      They had two. But you cant expect them to confront up to four burglars who potentially are armed. Dont blame the security guards, blame the security installation for being so weak and easy to overcome that the immediately alarmed police was not on the scene fast enough – this whole thing went down in only a few minutes.

      Germany is a country where you get paid minimum wage. Nobody wants to stay midnight patrolling a museum for barely any money. You can’t live of 9 euros per hour in Dresden.

    • Try over $1b. They were just asking for this, imho.

    • I’m currently doing my Internship at the local TV channel of Saxony. We had a interview today with the director of that museum. She said that they had Security and they also noticed it. But in the end they didnt tryed to catch the thieves because they didnt wanted them to risk their lifes for the jewelery.
