45276 E. Steele:
On Friday morning (September 9) around 8:00 am, a 50-year-old man from Essen noticed that his mobile home had been burglarized. He had parked a gray Citroen Jumper on Thursday evening on Henglerstrasse near the Kurt Schumacher Bridge.
The man from Essen immediately reported the theft to the police and, thanks to the GPS tracker, was able to tell the officers the current location of the mobile home on the A1 near Bremen (Lower Saxony).
Police officers from Essen immediately informed their colleagues in Bremen, who actually detected the Citroen on the highway using GPS data. There they wanted to subject the driver of the stolen mobile home to a traffic check. However, he evaded control and ran first on the A1 and then overland. The car got stuck in a forest area behind Bremen near Bockel (Lower Saxony). The suspect tried to flee on foot, but was caught by the police.
A 30-year-old Pole was arrested at the time – just 90 minutes after the theft was discovered./SoKo
