Türkenfeld/Althegnenberg - The 68-year-old taxi driver transported two men and a woman with his yellow VW Caddy car from Türkenfeld to Althegnenberg and back to the starting point late in the evening on Sunday, as reported by the Kripo. In Althegnenberg, the perpetrators got out of the car for a short time at the parking lot of a discount market in Münchner Strasse, allegedly to run errands.
