Grand Theft Bitcoin: 600+ Mining Computers Stolen In Iceland

Yesterday, the Iceland police informed than during December and January, burglars committed the greatest crypto related theft ever pulled, stealing more than 600 computers in several data centers of the country.
The info was given by Olafur Helgi Kjartansson, a police commissioner who qualified the robbery as something never seen. He stated that:”This is a grand theft on a scale unseen before,”. “Everything points to this being a highly organized crime.” The police officer also declared that they had not made the information public because they hoped to catch the burglars first.
These new technologies attract thieves due to the relative untraceability and anonymity of the transactions made in cryptocurrencies. Now the police have launched a full assault, detaining two suspects and tracking the stolen equipment by checking electrical surges in all the country. But they are most likely to be sold to another country.
Iceland is known as a haven for mining companies due to the abundant and cheap hydroelectric power provided. And now, for the biggest mining hardware heist ever pulled. Full source here.
