Scrap metal thieves steal historic locomotive

There has been another huge scrap metal theft in Ukraine, less than a week after thieves stole an entire bridge spanning a river.

The BBC reports a locomotive said to be the first ever built in Soviet Ukraine has been stolen from a museum.

It is thought that thieves who hired a crane from the State Transport company had forged documents saying that they had permission to move the locomotive to a new location.

The engine had a scrap value of just under $4,000.

The theft comes a few days after an 11-metre long bridge spanning a river in western Ukraine was stolen.
