In December 2022, a ball filled with gin disappeared from the bottom of Lake Constance.
In December last year, a mysterious theft at the bottom of Lake Constance made headlines. An 800-kilogram ball filled with 230 liters of gin was suddenly gone. To the amazement of the owners – the ball was several meters under water and was attached to a concrete base.
All searches were unsuccessful. The owner assumed that thieves had struck. He was shocked: “They were absolute professionals,” says Cello Fisch, the managing director of Ginial, a gin manufacturer.
Even weeks later, there is no trace of the ball. Like the «St. Galler Tagblatt», the Thurgau cantonal police have now stopped the investigation. “Our hands are tied,” says Michael Roth, media spokesman for the Thurgau canton police, to the newspaper. If new information was received, the investigation would be resumed.
However, the operators of the gin factory do not give up. As the newspaper continues to write, they are considering setting a finder’s fee. (dzc)
