“Amateurish” Geeky Thieves Breaks Unlocked Door, Steals Magic: The Gathering Cards Worth Thousands

Thousands of Magic: The Gathering were stolen from a business in the Zurich canton, Switzerland by “amateurish” thieves who probably did more in damages to the property than the value of the stolen cards.

Police believe the thieves may be involved either in gaming or collecting, as they knew the value of specific Magic: The Gathering cards and only stole the more valuable ones. However the police described the robbery itself as “amateurish”, saying in a statement that:

“They first tried to break an unlocked door. At the next door, they caused several thousand francs’ worth of damage getting it open.”

The theft took place in Dielsdorf, between midnight and 10am on Sunday morning March 13th, 2016 while the neighbouring restaurant was closed. The property, run by Markus and Regula Stocker, both in their 40s, is a meeting place for gamers as well as the base for an online business.

The police are appealing for witnesses and any gamers who have been offered cards “in a suspicious way”. They have also examined an empty drinks bottle left behind at the scene of the crime for DNA.
