The police report says the group, consisting of nine people, was well-organized and all members had their specific goal, from stealing, to paying attention to possible witnesses. Other part of their “job” was to dismantle the vehicle and sell its parts. The crucial information leading to their capture, was a fact, that the group only stole Skoda cars and kept many car leftovers at their homes.

According to the police, it is possible the amount of stolen vehicles can reach up to hundred and eighty. So far the approximate damage is around thirty million crowns, but will probably rise.
