Rare historical books worth an estimated EUR 2 million, including first editions of works by Galileo Galilei and Isaac Newton, were stolen from a postal warehouse in London in 2017. The criminal organisation involved, composed of Romanian nationals, had a history of committing complex, high-value thefts and had managed to avoid detection and prosecution by mainly operating outside Romania.
