Piraeus police announced on Wednesday that they have disbanded a 6-member gang accused of one homicide and tens of thefts and burglaries on the nearby island of Salamina.

The gang comprised six Greeks and three Romanian nationals who in the past year burglarised apartments and held up shops.

The gang members are also charged with one homicide, in the case of a break-in into a home in Salamina, where they tied up an 80-year-old man hand and foot and gagged him, resulting in the elderly man's death from suffocation.
