    The damage

    In broad daylight my motorhome was robbed in Malmö at the car parking close to the central train station.

    It happened when I was on the way back home to Germany after a two months tour through Norway, Finland and Sweden. I just stopped for 2 hours in Malmö before heading to Denmark.

    The main damage were: Camera equipment with about 8,000 pics, Laptop and souvenirs were gone - even toilet articles like wet shaver etc. were in the focus :(

    The police reported that criminals are concentrating on motor homes. The closeness to the border and the seaport attracts those criminals, the stolen goods can be quickly brought abroad !

    But, happiness in misery - police in Brussels sized the laptop 4 weeks later from a tourist, he bought the laptop from the street. The police checked the laptop and found fortunately my phone number :))) . The thieves left some traces on the Laptop see video

    This was already the second break-in in Sweden. The first happened in the first night after entering Sweden on the highway A6 to Oslo on same trip. We were sleeping on the rest place Erikslund, close to Ängelholm in the alcove when burglars opened the locked right front door and took away all the belongings they could reach from the driver's cabin. After our return, the German Embassy from Stockholm informed us that the empty handbag was found close to the incident - but without valuables of course. The police obtained our address from a ignored credit card which was of no use anymore - it was blocked anyway.
