  • Officials say thieves who broke into a southern German museum and stole hundreds of ancient gold coins got in and out in nine minutes. Police have launched an international hunt for the thieves and their loot, consisting of 483 Celtic coins and a lump of unworked gold discovered near the town of Manching in 1999. Museum security systems recorded that a door was pried open at 1:26 a.m. and then how the thieves left again at 1:35 a.m. Bavarian police said there were “parallels” between the heist in Manching and the theft of priceless jewels and a large gold coin in Dresden and Berlin. Bavaria’s minister of science and arts said Wednesday evidence pointed to the work of professionals.
