  • [01] Six arrested for series of church robberies

    AMNA--Four individuals, all described as repatriated Greeks from the former Soviet Union and members of the same family, along with two other people, are accused of a series of break-ins targeting churches in northern Greece to remove votive offerings and religious objects, it was announced by police on Monday.

    The father, mother and two sons, and other two alleged accomplices, are in custody, charged with committing at least 10 break-ins during the summer. They mainly targeted churches in the northern prefectures of Halkidiki, Serres, Kilkis, Drama and Thessalolniki.

    A search in one of the suspects' houses and in a store owned by the family of four allegedly revealed a gold bar weighing 240 grams, 65 gold sovereigns, a number of votive offerings, two assault knives and roughly 96,000 euros in cash.

    All suspects will be led before a prosecutor.
