Highway Crime - Small-time Crooks and Organized Gangs
Germany’s autobahns are becoming increasingly popular with crooks, international organized gangs and Mafiosi. Their targets are unwitting drivers who they to relieve of several hundred euros and lorry drivers whose valuable freight they steal. The tricks of the crooks are sophisticated and dangerous. This film goes on the trail of the criminals. The camera is there when organized gangs set off to use their ‘highway gold’ - fake jewellery - as confidence tricksters in the mornings and when they make entire lorry-loads disappear at night.
