Someone has several to sell after two major thefts. 20 rare handmade trumpets have been stolen from a shop in Winterthur. They’re worth about CHF 5,000 each.

The theft follows a similar case in Visp in canton Valais at the beginning of the month where several Guggenmusik trumpets were taken from a shop.

Police are not linking the two thefts yet – but Zurich police say they are coordinating with other cantons.

A few months ago, several musical instruments were also taken from a shop in Geneva.
