Part of stolen loot thrown in Vltava River

The police have apprehended two men who broke into a Prague jewellery store after hours on April 9 and stole more than a million crowns worth of gold, silver jewellery and precious gems. The spokesman for the city police force, Tomáš Hulan, confirmed on the internet that both had past criminal records and had served time in prison, which is where the two met. The suspects allegedly threw some of their loot in the Vltava River; a police diving team may be dispatched to search for it; if found guilty, each suspect could face up to eight years in prison.
