November 21, 2013 – Police is searching for a man who allegedly tried to rob a coin dealer in the German town of Eisingen. On Wednesday morning a man asked for certain gold coins worth a couple of thousand euros. Later, at about 1 pm, he returned and suddenly brandished a grenade-like object forcing the dealer to hand over the coins. When another client entered the shop the robber escaped, though, with no booty in a light ML class Mercedes. The car showed the number plate LB-XX 1965 which had been stolen previously.
