Two men from Lithuania are serving a prison sentence of two years and three months for a series of burglaries in machinery halls, where GPS equipment for agricultural machinery was stolen for hundreds of thousands of kroner.
In connection with a burglary at a machine hall in Vinderup on the night of May 17, a summoned patrol car was alerted to a passenger car with Lithuanian registration number, which the officers chose to retrospect.
However, the driver of the passenger car had no intention of stopping for the patrol car despite a lit emergency signal, but instead chose to try to wrest off the officers before later being arrested.
During the escape attempt, the occupants of the car chose to throw GPS equipment and other items from the car, exposing the lives and safety of police officers to nearby danger when, among other things, a four-kilogram GPS system hit the front of the patrol car.
However, the officers subsequently managed to bring the vehicle in front to a halt, and today the two men were then found guilty of violating sections 119 and 252 of the Penal Code, as well as four different counts of burglary.
