25 buckets of cash stolen from the Europark

The sleepy Limburg municipality of Houthalen-Helchteren has been stunned by an audacious raid on the local car wash. On Boxing Day night burglars got away with 80,000 euros in small change that had been saved in 25 buckets.

Car wash workers at the Europark business park only noticed the theft of the 25 buckets on Thursday. They called in the police who completed the necessary paperwork.

There is as yet no trace of the culprits, but if you happen to notice anybody with a bucket full of small change don't hesitate to call Limburg police!
