Customs officials on the German-Swiss border at Rheinheim have detained two East Europeans on suspicion of smuggling up to 21 pianos into Germany.

The pianos, which were second-hand, had estimated values of up to 10,000 Euros.

Are we feeling safer now?

  • What does “up to mean 21”? Crime reporting should produce an exact number for pianos, especially if they were grands.

  • “Are we feeling safer now?”
    At the risk of starting the obvious, this was presumably to do with tax or duty avoidance rather than security concerns.
