Thieves have stolen items from the storage room of the Rotunda building on Chopok, a peak in the Low Tatras. The Mountain Rescue Service (HZS) said that its members found items were missing on Wednesday, June 29, the TASR newswire reported.

The thieves damaged both doors to the building and took rescue material. The police were called and are investigating the case. TASR quoted HZS head Jozef Janiga as saying that the rescuers' base in the Low Tatras was last burgled about two years ago and, before that, thieves also operated in the Western Tatras. In this theft, damage was calculated at almost €1,500. The stolen items mainly consisted of technical rescue equipment such as ropes, karabiners, and other climbing tools, the SITA newswire wrote.
