Police believe the thief or thieves entered through a window near the back by the train tracks with help from a ladder. Not much else is being disclosed at this time, as the investigation is ongoing.
The Bode Museum houses one of the worlds largest coin collections, and was noted in detail in The Checkpoint, Berlin Detective Series, Book I, Exposed: The Education of Sarah Brown. It is the location of a date Sarah goes on with Dutch Lothario, Paul Christiansen, a place he personally loves because of his deep appreciation for art. Strange that a coin measuring 53 centimeters in diameter, that was housed inside bullet-proof glass, could be stolen right out from under security cameras, and museum personnel. It's sure that police will root out the thief(ves) soon, recover the coin, restore good faith with Canada, and will toss the criminal(s) in prison where they belong.
