Police on Sunday reported the arrest of four Romanian men aged 21, 25, 19 and 27 years old, respectively, that were caught carrying 480 kilos of copper power cables stolen from the Greek Railways (OSE) railroad tracks.

The four were arrested when the Serres police crime prevention and prosecution unit stopped and searched their car on the 22nd kilometre of the Thessaloniki-Serres road.

The cables are used by OSE to move electrically-powered trains along the track. An investigation showed that the cables found hidden in the boot of the car had been removed from sections of the Thiva-Lamia overground cable lines in the past 10 days. Also found in the car was a small quantity of cannabis.

All four will be led before a Serres public prosecutor on Monday.
