Sindri Thór Stefánsson the most famous robber of Iceland made a statement in which he vowed that wants to get home.
On February 2, police detained Stefansson, who allegedly robbed several large mining farms. In prison, he didn’t stay long and on the night of April 18, he fled and already reached Sweden. Following his words, he was “legally allowed” to travel.
“I would never have tried to escape from prison if I had been legally deprived of liberty by a judge’s decision, ” he claims and continued, “In addition, I was in custody for two and a half months without evidence, but only because of suspicions of the police.”
The fugitive got out of the Sogni prison and went to Keflavik International Airport. There he took a fake passport on an airplane flight to Sweden. The police discovered the escape when Stefansson’s plane was already landing in another country.
Europol issued an international warrant for the arrest of the criminal. Icelandic police don’t consider him as dangerous for other.
Stefansson from December 5, 2017 to January 16, 2018 committed several dozen burglaries. He managed to steal 600 computers, 600 video cards, 100 power supplies, 100 motherboards, 100 hard disks and 100 processors from the mining farms in the north-west of Iceland.
The damage is estimated at $1.99 million. Local magazine “Iceland” calls the incident “one of the largest criminal cases in Icelandic history.”
