A successful burglary recently occurred in Liège, in the apartment of a 26-year-old girl. It was undoubtedly the lure of profit that motivated the suspect since he fled with a loot of 50,000 euros.
The owner of the apartment was organizing a small party with friends at her home when she, accompanied by the guests, headed for Le Carré around 2 a.m. to continue the evening. When she returned home, around 7am, she noticed that the front door of her apartment had been broken into and the premises searched.
Only a safe had been stolen. However, the latter contained the modest sum of 50,000 euros in cash.
According to the Liège prosecutor’s office, the victim quickly directed the investigation towards a young man born in 1998, who had come to his apartment the previous Saturday. She did explain that this person had come to her home and asked many questions about the safe in question. A suspicion towards one of his acquaintances, which proved to be successful, because if it is not known for the time being whether the money has been found, the elements of the investigation seemed sufficient to arrest this suspect.
The suspect was referred to the Liège prosecutor’s office on Thursday. His file has been placed under investigation and an application for an arrest warrant has been made against him.
