Translation

Bold Burglars  –  In the night of 11th and 12th, unknown burglars entered the salon of the villa Lycklama by breaking a window, and they rampaged that room.

Only half satisfied by their catch, the burglars wanted to penetrate into other parts of the villa, but the doors of the salon were keylocked.

They unsuccessfully tried to open the doors, but in order not to be trapped they had to take the same way back through the salon.

The value of the stolen objects is not yet known.

The police have opened an inquiry.
