Two thieves who stole a valuable handbag in Monaco on May 18 have been sent to jail. The scene of the crime was outside Sass Cafe, where the two Slovak nationals had been refused entry.

The Criminal Court in Monaco heard that the two men had been suspected of the theft – the handbag was valued at €20,000 – when they suddenly disappeared. On the following day they retuned to the scene and were recognised by staff who reported them to police.

Following their arrest the police searched their car, in which the two had been sleeping, but the handbag was not there. They denied the charge of theft. Video surveillance was said to be of poor quality. The two me were sent to jail for four months.
