Gold coins valued at 1.6 million euros

A group of thieves seized ancient gold coins dating back to the Celtic civilization from a German museum.

The group took hundreds of gold coins from a museum in Manching, Bavaria, in the middle of the night, in a 9-minute robbery, according to German police.

It is believed that the thieves sabotaged the alarm system in the museum, prior to carrying out the operation, and cut the internet wires in the vicinity, causing widespread power outages.

Police are seeking to verify whether the robbery was linked to previous operations.
