After robbery at gas station: suspects arrested – 14- and 15-year-olds released again
The 14-year-old and the 15-year-old have since been released. Previously, forces had searched the apartments of the young men. "In doing so, they were able to seize incriminating evidence," the police said in a statement.
Even after the attack on a gas station in Bamberg last year, where an armed perpetrator was able to flee with the loot, the police searched for him with a large contingent including helicopters and sniffer dogs.
