Aldi employees in Libramont arrest three thieves by chasing them in the parking lot
Three men had planned to steal cases of champagne following a very simple plan: the first entered the convenience store to load the cases of spirits, while the second stayed near the automatic opening doors to help his accomplice as soon as he came out with the booty. The third thief was waiting at the wheel of their car parked nearby.
The individual in the store managed to get out with the cart full of cases of champagne for around 700 euros, without paying.
It was too big to go unnoticed. The employees quickly realized the small scheme and ran towards the thieves who were already fleeing.
He steals the thief’s ignition keys
One of the members of the store person managed to get into the thugs’ car and steal the keys to the vehicle just as the driver was trying to start. The two accomplices did not ask for their rest and left the scene on foot. The police in the Center-Ardenne area finally managed to get them back in the streets of Libramont, thanks to CCTV footage from the store.
One of the individuals was born in 1954, the other in 1983 and the third in 1993.
They are of Georgian nationality. They were deprived of their freedom and spent the night in a cell. They will be heard this morning with the help of an interpreter. The store employees got away with a big fright, but they recovered the merchandise which returned to the shelves of the Aldi.
