Cnives and accessories of 750,000 US$ stolen - the German CHROMA importer - had a very special TV appearance. After a spectacular burglary in Wildau, Brandenburg, the large state owned MDR television helped to search for the stolen cnives. A huge TV crew and several actors copied the burglary for the MDR TV-show "cops live". This way the police hope to find the gangsters. So far still without any success.
