General News: Stolen ton of copper found in Corinthia prefecture

An organised police operation was carried out at a Roma settlement at Zevgolatio, in the Corinthia prefecture, at dawn on Wednesday.
During the search a quantity of copper weighing one ton was found concealed in a truck. The quantity had been stolen from the Corinth-Kiato railway line and its value amounted to 200,000 euros according to an assessment by a relevant employee of the Hellenic Railways Organisation (OSE), to whom police delivered the quantity of copper.

A file of proceedings has been prepared against the 22-year-old owner of the truck, who is still at large, while a 50-year-old was also arrested during the operation because two convictions were pending against him.
