  • Description

    A policeman who stopped a car for a traffic violation discovered the latest in burglary devices - a getaway car for stealing safes.

    The car and its three occupants escaped down a gangway into an alley. The policeman examined the car and found a safe, partly covered by a blanket, in the back where the rear seat should have been.

    He tried the right front door. It would not open. But the back door did - and it opened the front one, too. Both had been welded together in such a way that, when they swung open, the entire passenger area of the car was exposed.

    Back seats had been removed, and a heavy steel floor covered the whole area. The floor was equipped with steel rollers and a place for fastening steel skid rails which could be lowered through the door to provide a ramp on which to push heavy objects into the car.
