Break-in nets burglars $15m
Valuables worth about $15 million were stolen from a flat in Bowen Road yesterday.
Police said the thieves tampered with the alarm system to the fourth-floor home of German businessman Nils Thomsen at about 12.30 am before breaking in through a patio window.
Two safes containing gold watches and jewellery were prised open and several large antiques were taken.
The first-floor flat of radio talk show host Albert Cheng Kin-hong was also reported to have been broken into, but it was empty for renovation.
