Since when did the Germans become masters of understatement? I'm talking about this article from Reuters, "Thief deposits loot with victim."

BERLIN (Reuters) - Three days after stealing a rare collection of coins, a thief in Germany took them to the bank for safe keeping -- and delivered them into the hands of the man he had robbed.

"I don't think the thief was expecting that," said a spokesman for police in the western city of Dortmund on Tuesday.

No, I'm pretty sure if the thief knew the banker was the guy he robbed, he would've chosen a different bank.
