Italian police catch 'key-bump' burglar gang

Rome, September 6 - A specialized criminal gang that managed to break into homes and garages without leaving a trace hit at least 55 locations in northern Italy before being caught, police said Friday. Police arrested six gang members in Turin and another four are under investigation for break-ins dating back to December 2012 in the regions of Piedmont and Liguria. The thieves used a technique police have termed "key bumping" which allows the robbers to force cylinder door locks without leaving any signs. Last month in Rome, police nabbed 37 members of a criminal gang - most from the ex-Soviet republic of Georgia - for breaking into homes around Rome using a similar technique.
