Polish thieves steal van with 12 sealed coffins inside

Posted: Updated:

WARSAW, Poland –  A group of Polish car thieves got some unexpected cargo when they stole a van in Germany: 12 sealed coffins.

Polish police said the coffins were found early Tuesday in the woods near the western Polish city of Konin. The thieves apparently dumped the coffins after they unwittingly stole a van in Germany that was on its way to a crematorium.

The coffins were in one of three vans stolen on the night of Oct. 14 in the Berlin suburb of Hoppegarten.

Polish police spokesman Andrzej Borowiak says three Poles have been detained and two more are being sought on suspicion of stealing the vehicles.
