In a most unusual incident thieves on Monday stole an entire bridge, apparently for its scrap metal, in the western province of Kocaeli.

The 22-ton bridge, which was 25 meters long, was in a village in Kocaeli's Gölçük district and was regularly used by villagers to cross a creek to reach their orchards. The villagers were astonished to discover the disappearance of the bridge on Monday morning as they were making their way to the orchards and immediately alerted the police.

It should be easy to find.  Try the scrap-metal dealer's place.

One 3 axle truck would be enough for the get away vehicle but i'm guessing 4 or 5 coaches for the team big enough to dismantle a bridge in what i assume to be overnight,maybe the villager that was shocked was the only one not in on it

Well i guess we now know where the term village idiot originated from,the evolutionary path for village idiots leads straight back in time to these very people  :lol:

"If it is not advantageous,do not move.If objectives can not be attained,do not employ the army.Unless endangered do not engage in warfare.The ruler cannot mobilize the army out of personal anger.The general can not engage in battle because of personal frustration.When it is advantageous,move;when not advantageous,stop.Anger can revert to happiness,annoyance can revert to joy,but a vanquished state cannot be revived,the dead cannot be brought back to life."
