Zurich cellar burglars target fine wines
Burglars are targeting cellars in canton Zurich.
Investigations show the majority of the thefts are being carried out by a very small group of professionals. One man caught by Zurich police is thought to be responsible for 80 break-ins alone.
The teams are targeting expensive bicycles and fine wines. They prove their expertise by often leaving cheaper items behind.
There were almost 700 cellar thefts in Zurich alone in 2017.
The main targets are multi-occupancy buildings and cellars are thought to be considered a soft target.
