Bulgarian police bust looting ring

Tuesday, February 5th, 2008

The felicitously named Bulgarian Directorate for Combating Organized Crime has busted a gang of 19 looters with operations in 5 major cities.

The police found a completely preserved ancient chariot, over 2,800 ancient coins, over 790 various archeological monuments, seven matrixes for minting coins, as well as ancient ceramic, glass, and bronze vessels.

Imagine what it took for these low lives to score a complete ancient chariot. They didn’t just scratch up the topsoil. Odds are they had heavy machinery and tore into the site.
