In a seldom-used part of town in Czechoslovakia, thieves have stolen a four-tonnes (1.10 short ton) railway bridge. The company that was supposed to maintain that part of the bridge is puzzled and called police to notify them of the theft.
This daring heist took place in the western part of Czechoslovakia in the town of Cheb. The Czech police are baffled by the case and said they have never dealt with such a theft.
A police spokeswoman spoke to the Associated Press and said they are not sure whether it was stolen for personal use or for the scrap value of the metal in the bridge.
The company that was supposed to maintain the bridge is not sure how this theft took place.
The bridge weighs about 4,000 kilograms (8818.49 pounds).
