The gang stole millions of forints worth of goods and made a living from selling them. Police found expensive TV sets, smartphones, disinfectants, bicycles and hundreds of thousands of forints worth of medical bandages.
Cegléd police have been investigating the matter of looted railway wagons since the spring of 2019.
Members of the gang are suspected of breaking into freight wagons stationed at Cegléd, Albertirsa and Ferencváros railway stations, taking away the goods and later trying to sell them.
Police detained nine men and two women after raiding nine addresses in Cegléd and one in Budapest.
