In order to arrest the man, the police recently announced a request for information and a photo from a surveillance camera. The Bavarian Criminal Police Office offered a reward of 1,000 euros for information. According to the police, the man is said to have gained access to commercial properties several times in the past few years – such as restaurants, kiosks or club houses. He is said to have stolen merchandise and cash with a high five-digit euro value. Property damage from burglaries is said to be in the low six-figure range.

The 51-year-old is allegedly responsible for burglaries in the northern parts of Augsburg, as well as in Koenigsbrunn and neighboring towns in eastern and northeastern Augsburg. The man is said to have mostly cycled during his rides. It is currently being determined whether he has one or more partners. As a police spokesperson explained when asked, according to the current state of knowledge, there are many indications that he is “at least for the most part acting alone”.
