Abandoned gold bars baffle German police
BERLIN (AP) - September 30, 2013 (WPVI) -- Attention all passengers: could the person who left a stash of gold bars and a pile of banknotes in the luggage deposit at Cologne's main railway station kindly contact German police?
That was the appeal that police in the western German city issued Friday for information to track down the owner of the several kilos (pounds) of gold and a six-figure sum of euros in cash.
The stash was found in April in a luggage locker at the station, a major European transport hub. Police said they're going public after being unable to link the haul to any crime and hearing nothing from any legitimate owner.
Whoever the owner is shouldn't leave it too much longer. Police say that if nobody comes forward, the stash will be sold.
