Millions Of Euros Of Celtic Gold Stolen From Bavarian Museum In 9 Minute Heist

The treasure, which is over two thousand years old, consisted of 483 coins which were discovered near Manching in 1999.

Just to be clear, it wasn't me.  I did not steal the Celtic gold.  


At 1:26 a.m., an outside door was pried open, said the Vice President of the State Criminal Police Office, Guido Limmer, on Wednesday in Manching near Ingolstadt. The thieves then stole the coins from two showcases and left the museum at 1.35 a.m. – after only nine minutes. -Die Welt (translated)

Investigators are also looking into whether the burglary was related to sabotage at a local phone distribution branch in Manching located around 1km from the museum, which paralyzed the telephone network and the internet, thus preventing the alarm system from notifying authorities.

  2. One exterior door was all that stood between thieves and millions in gold?
    Who could have seen that coming?
    If I had known I might have taken a run at it, after all those coins might have belonged to a relative of mine. (from Mom's side of the family)

      Melt them down to get, what, one pound of gold?

      Art collectors on the black market is where the money is.

  4. Looks like a LA smash & grab caper. Maybe they got enough loot there to take a vacation to Bavaria.

    1. We Bavarians have a long line of Celtic heritage.
      Greetings to our Northern cousins in Brittany, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales!
