Unusual turn of crime

In 1993, an employee of an Austrian bank, Otto Newman, organized a robbery on his shift, in which two of his accomplices participated. The bank took out money in an amount equivalent to today's 167 thousand euros, as well as gold bars and coins. The crime was solved, all the loot was returned, and Newman spent three and a half years in prison.

In 2012, it turned out that the bank did not claim the stolen amount, which was kept in the Ministry of Justice, as it received it under insurance, and the insurance company, to which the gold was transferred, did not apply for it. As a result, the court decided to transfer money to Newman, who was very surprised by this decision, but did not refuse.
