Some Stolen Red Bull F1 Trophies Found in a Lake

A recent update from Red Bull Racing brought some good news, saying that some of the team’s stolen trophies got recovered from a lake near Sandhurst just a few days ago. This really shows how senseless the heist was.

In case you’re not up with the news, police were called to the factory at around 1:30 am on December 6th after a group of six men used a silver SUV to drive through the glass structure that up makes the front entrance of the building and stole more than 60 trophies from inside.

Nobody knows what would determine someone do this, especially because many of those trophies have an insignificant intrinsic value. They only mattered for the team, representing their glorious achievements, but the materials they were made from were not expensive enough to get rich after such a heist.

Ten days later, the members of the Specialist Search and Rescue Team managed to pull about 20 trophies out of Horseshoe lake after a citizen recognized one near the shore and alerted the authorities.

"Some of the trophies were recovered from Horseshoe Lake near Sandhurst yesterday (15/12). We estimate about twenty trophies have been recovered, but we are liaising with Red Bull to establish the exact number, as some of the trophies are damaged,” investigating officer Det Con Chris Oakman said.

The dumb burglars must have discovered some of the trophies are worthless regarding the materials they’re made of so they tried to discard the evidence. The police said nothing about fingerprints or other details about the thieves.

People are encouraged to contact the police in case they spot other trophies or parts of them. Those wanting to remain anonymous can do it via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
