True to the mystery wisdom: The perpetrator is always the gardener …
Porta Westfalica – Two insidious criminals apparently disguised themselves as gardeners in order to break into the house of a woman (62) in Porta Westfalica-Barkhausen. When the resident entered the house, the robbers ambushed and handcuffed her!
Now the police are looking for the duo with images from a surveillance camera and are asking for clues.
That was what happened
According to the investigation, in the absence of the resident, the two men entered the family home through a tilted window and overpowered the woman upon her return. After forcing the 62-year-old to give them valuable gold and silver coins, the perpetrators fled with their loot.
