Police in Southwest Poland mentioned that two burglars sold the bridge by the process of dismantling and sold it in for a scrap.
The bridge used by the local mine authorities was cut into elements and taken through truck to a recycling scrap point.
As the burglars were taken into custody by accident. They were making the last run when their truck broke down.
Mine security officers identified a doubtful truck standing by the roadside and called the police.
It was strange how the authorities couldn't identify the bridge dismantling process.
