Researching the German Grandpa Gang

This weekend I drove to the beautiful German region of Sauerland near Dortmund with my friend Thomas Rietstra, who speaks German really well.  We had a meeting with judge Horst-Werner Herkenberg who told us about his famous case ten years ago: the case of the Grandpa Gang (or in German: Die Opa-Bande). Three elderly men robbed banks in this lovely neighbourhood for over a decade and stole more than a million Euro's.
