Slovak police have launched an investigation into a case of breaking and entering at Bratislava's hotel Tatra into 12 rooms of the Danish ice hockey team and of a Finnish couple, the TASR newswire reported on May 8.
"If convicted the perpetrator will face up to ten years in prison," said Bratislava Regional Police spokesman František Peczár. The offender is reported to have stolen money and personal belongings, such as iPod phones, iPad tablets, perfumes and sunglasses.
"The losses caused to the Danish players and VIP visitors from Denmark is still only being calculated, but the married couple from Finland reported a loss worth €1,550," said Peczár.
The Danish team reported the case to the International Ice Hockey Federation. The hotel said that they would compensate the victims of the burglary for their financial losses regardless of what happens with the police investigation.
