Several thieves have broken into the Green Vault of the Dresden Palace, the treasure chamber of this emblematic complex, and have takenone hundred pieces with jewelry, as reported Monday by the Police, which has opened an investigation into the case.
The museum's security service alerted at dawn of the theft, allegedly committed after two people entered inside the palaceafter breaking the window pane. The authorities suspect that these two people did not act alone and that there are more involved.
The raid has resulted in the theft of some one hundred objects from the collection of the electing prince of Saxony Augustus the Strong (1670-1733). Sets of buttons, buckles, hat ornaments and medalsThey are decorated with diamonds, rubies, emeralds or sapphires.
The head of the Dresden State Art Collections, Marion Ackermann, has recognized that the value of stolen goods cannot be quantified in number, since the artistic value of the set exceeds the material.
The Prime Minister of Saxony, Michael Kretschmer, has lamented the facts, mainly because of the importance of the assaulted collection. "The history of Saxony cannot be understood without the Green Vault and without the State Art Collections", said the conservative politician.
