Bridge Over Troubled Rail Lines

Remember that time 4 years ago when a group of thieves made off with 4 tonnes of railway bridge? Believe it or not it’s happened again…in the same part of the world, no less.

But unlike last time, these thieves weren’t content with a paltry 4 tonnes of bridge.

Armed with some forged documents claiming they’d been hired to dismantle the structure and an obvious go big or go home philosophy, these fellows got away with 10 tonnes of footbridge and more than 650 feet of railroad track. Officials say the cost of replacing it will likely hit the several million dollar mark. No idea how much all that metal will be worth on the black market, but going to all that trouble would seem to suggest a pretty penny.
