These 10 shrewd guys were robbing trains. Their catch was 2168 balls, mass of each – 7 kg 800 g, which could be sold for 20 thousand dollars. They managed to unload them for half an hour. 120 policemen and 40 shooters were trying to catch the guys and they finally did it.

    They were stealing metal balls? That is so stupid.

    i think those balls are quite expensive. In indonesia, lots of nails in train track are stolen..

  4. geoff says:

    2168 balls multiplied by 7.8 kg equals about 17 tonnes of steal, and over here that’s worth about $150 per tonne divided between them all.

    They would be better off on social welfare…….

    Honestly, this is good news! Old fashioned trainrobbery. Id love to see them escape on horses or maybe a trolley on the traintrack :)

    I have a hard time believing they could get $10/ball.

    After the handcuffs went on they should have made them reload the train car by throwing them back in!
