26 bicycles stolen in Salzburg – prison sentence for denying Romanians
According to the prosecution, a 27-year-old Romanian had stolen bicycles in series in Salzburg after he had cracked the locks. Specifically, there were 26 bikes, including e-bikes, that he stole between March and October 2020, i.e. partly in the corona lockdown, and presumably spent in his home country – for sale.
As early as the beginning of October, the Romanian was first in the dock at the Salzburg regional court – he denied himself responsible, although heavily burdened by a number of circumstantial evidence: an accomplice, thirdly his cell phone was suspiciously often logged in near crime scenes and finally photos were found on his cell phone that showed the showed several of the stolen bikes.
After a trial was adjourned at the time, the Romanian nun received four months of unconditional imprisonment (already legally binding) on Wednesday for serious commercial burglary with a total damage of around 38,000 euros. The current judgment was used as an additional penalty to a conviction in Germany of 20 months of conditional imprisonment for similar offenses, which was only issued in July 2021.
