A year and a half after the spectacular robbery of jewelry from a museum in Dresden, the fifth and last major suspect has been arrested. This is Abdel Majid Rammo (22 years old), a member of the notorious criminal “clan” from Berlin. He is half a twin and managed to escape from the police twice.
Abdul Majid was arrested last night during a search in the Neukölln neighborhood of Berlin, his headquarters. A mobile phone and clothes were confiscated. The police were already on their heels in early January, but the 1920s managed to escape.
Remmo’s twin brother, Muhammad, had been detained since the end of last year. He was arrested in Neukölln on December 14th. He was supposed to meet an acquaintance, but he was already spotted by the police team. And an international arrest warrant was issued for the twins.
German police had already arrested three suspects in November during a dramatic police raid. Police sources told Berlin media at the time that they were Wissam (23), Rabeh (23) and Bashir (26). Like the twins, the three are German citizens and belong to the Ramou clan, a notorious 500-member Lebanese-Kurdish family in the German capital.
The twins managed to escape just before the police operation. According to German media, they were informed of the imminent action.
Prosecutors assume that the five main suspects were assisted by four men who visited the museum the day before the jewelry robbery. Among other things, it can be seen in the parade condition where the crown jewels were and you will explore the place. One of the four is said to be linked to one of the main suspects. Television footage of the quad was released in March.

It is not yet known if traces of the loot have been found in the Grünes Gewölbe Historical Museum in Dresden. The robbers set off on November 25, 2019 with the mighty crown jewels of Augustus, also known as the “ Sun King of Saxony ”. Jewelry is of invaluable cultural value. Thieves broke into a grid in front of a window on the first floor. Then they made their way to the jewelry room downstairs and made their move. The guards witnessed the theft through their screens, which lasted for a few minutes.
The thieves fled Dresden in a Mercedes that was allegedly used as a taxi and drove nearly 200 kilometers north to Berlin. Previously, they used an Audi A6 to get away from the museum. Then they set him on fire in an underground garage a few kilometers from the museum. The stolen items included some of the upper pieces, such as the White Dresden Diamond and the Polish White Eagle Order.
At the end of November 2019, a reward of half a million euros was offered for the Golden Advice.
Giant gold coin
Wissam Ramou was sentenced to two years and six months in prison in November last year for the robbery of a multi-equipment hydraulic plant in the state of Bavaria. He was also one of the suspects in the spectacular theft of a 100K gold coin worth 3.7 million euros from the Berlin Bode Museum in March 2017. The manner of the perpetrators at the time was very similar to the art theft in Dresden. Wissam and his cousin Ahmed, 21, were sentenced to 4.5 years in prison in February 2020.
