Shortly after 2 p.M., the 34-year-old man from schweinfurt in stepfgasse apparently became aware that the side door of the transporter was not properly locked. The man then took advantage of the situation and stole the medicine transport box from the vehicle. With the stolen goods, the suspected perpetrator then went around the corner and hid behind a parked car. Curious, the accused opened the box there to see what medicines were inside. However, he was already found a short time later by the driver of the delivery vehicle.
Perpetrator flees without prey
The witness tried to detain the 34-year-old when he fled the scene. The suspected thief, however, managed to break away and escape without the loot. The witness hit the wall of a house with his elbow, causing minor injuries.
The suspected perpetrator was then arrested by the schweinfurt police as part of a manhunt that was immediately initiated.
