Successful taking down of criminal network targeting lorries

Eurojust has provided rapid support to the Romanian, German and French authorities to dismantle an organised crime group involved in large-scale cargo thefts from lorries parked in motorway rest areas in Germany and France. During a joint action day, 34 suspects have been charged, of whom 14 were arrested in Romania and Germany. Eurojust assisted the authorities with the setting up and funding of a joint investigation team and enabled cross-border judicial cooperation and coordination.
