Four days after the death of Tinco Lycklama (one day after the funeral ceremony and the departure of his coffin for The Netherlands), burglars entered the Villa Lycklama. As reported by Courrier de Cannes on 15 December 1900…
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.
