Last Sunday, 20 police divers searched the waters of a canal in Berlin’s Neukölln district. The purpose of the search was to try to find jewelry stolen in 2019 from the Residenzschloss Museum in Dresden. The site of the operation was secured by the police and was thoroughly checked by experienced divers.

In November 2019, criminals stole a collection of jewels valued at 113 million euros from the historic Grünes Gewölbe (Green Crypt) vault. Among the looted pretzels were a total of 21 pieces of jewelry. However, wishing to have an overview of the full scale of the looted goods, it should be noted that more than 4.3 diamonds and other precious stones were used to make the looted items.

On the trail of stolen jewelry

A week ago, German authorities announced that Berlin had managed to recover most of the jewels that had fallen prey to thieves. Undoubtedly, after three years of intensive investigation, German services have begun to reap the fruits of their hard work. Police have managed to recover much of the loot lo oted in Dresden, which was stored in the German capital.

The recovered jewelry pieces were transported by investigators back to the museum in Dresden for inspection. Therefore, now in the Saxon capital, specialists will carry out a relevant inspection to confirm the authenticity and completeness of the jewels. It is known that among them was the star of the Polish Order of the White Eagle. Police are not revealing too many details about the case, but it is known that six people linked to the Arab Remmo clan have been arrested.

The Grünes Gewölbe Museum of Jewelry and Goldsmithing was founded in 1721 by the Elector of Saxony and electoral king of Poland August II the Strong. At the time, he established a treasury of Saxon electors in Dresden. Over the years, the collection gathered in the Green Crypt became one of the richest collections of jewels in Europe.
