Equipment stolen – tracks in the snow: thieves caught at construction site

That’s daring: on Friday afternoon, three Croats shamelessly wanted to steal expensive construction site equipment from the St. Michael junction in the Leoben district (Styria). But a patrol from the Gleinalm highway police discovered them.

At around 4.30pm, officers from the Gleinalm Motorway Police were carrying out routine patrols in the area surrounding the St. Michael junction. This point connects the Pyhrnautobahn (A 9) with the Semmering Expressway (S6) and the Murtal Expressway (S36).

Near driveway B, the police noticed a small van with a Croatian license plate on the closed construction site. The driver of the vehicle was about to re-enter the St. Michael intersection.

Cargo area full of stolen goods
The officers stopped the small truck. As part of the driver and vehicle inspection, the vehicle’s cargo area was also examined. There the police found a so-called ripper, an excavator bucket and a hydraulic digging tool.

Based on the tracks in the snow, it quickly became clear that the three Croats (32, 36 and 38 years old) did not belong to the construction site, but had rather stolen the equipment from the trailer of a construction company.

Report in general
The three known Croats were released on the orders of the Leoben Public Prosecution Service.
