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.


Wow so it really is a global problem, its huge in the UK with war memorials, train tracks etc etc being stolen people risking their lives stealing cables from electrical distribution centres, with hundreds of thousands of volts pulsing thru them, but a complete bridge being stolen its not funny but lol

Poor farmers.

Oh the possibilities though lol. Aliens, Freak Flash Flooding, Government Conspiricy, Corporate Conspiracy.

Hope they get their bridge back soon. Time to get ATV's maybe?

Hats off for determination!

In America we have thieves who like stealing copper wire, even if it is live electric cable running on overhead poles. Of course sometimes this is a self limiting problem and a Darwin Award nominee or two.

Well given the MO it shouldn't be too hard to figure out who did this:

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Metal theft is a big problem here in the UK too. So much so that they have now changed the law so you can't just weight it in for cash any more.  Even grave plaques and memorials have been stolen, which is just low.

I keep imagining the 'thieves' loading up their truck and then realising they are on the wrong side of the water and can't get back to their 'bridge stealers' hideout...

WOW...If the theft of a bridge isn't enough to tell you that crime is getting worse in the world then absolutely nothing will.
