The Corvini Castle in Hunedoara (also known as Hunyad Castle) has been robbed during the past weekend. More precisely, the castle’s pay desk has been broken, with the prejudice being estimated to over RON 170,000 (about EUR 37,000), money originating from the ticket sales during the May 1st mini-vacation.
A bodyguard noticed on Tuesday morning that the window from the pay desk was broken, and he notified the Police.
“Police officers are probing into the charge of aggravated theft. Unidentified authors broke into the booking office area in the Castle and stole the returns cashed in during the weekend. They are in the process of identifying the thieves and recover the prejudice. A criminal file has been opened,” said Hunedoara Police spokesperson, Bogdan Nitu.
Police officers also investigate the lead that the thief would have stayed inside the castle over night.
The investigators also check the safety measures of the castle, considering that the entrance pay desk had no safe to deposit the money.
Moreover, the castle has a contract with a security company but it hasn’t reacted in due time, reporting the money loss only on Tuesday morning, although the robbery would have been allegedly committed on the night of Monday to Tuesday.
