Drivers near Litoměřice report Balkan bandits

Police in the town of Litoměřice say they are receiving frequent complaints of gang harassment and banditry on the D8 motorway. The police told the Czech Press Agency Thursday that several times a week drivers have reported having been stopped by a group of people, allegedly from the Balkans, and either offered obscure goods for sale or robbed on the spot. The police have thus far been unable to apprehend anyone involved as the group quickly changes its location. Most of those stopped have been foreigners from Western Europe.
