The suspects committed fraud in a coordinated manner, dividing tasks – i.e. as members of an organised gang, the Sme daily wrote, citing the police Facebook page.

Thus, potential buyers always contacted a member of the gang, who pretended to be a go-between, or real estate broker.

They caused damage amounting to €600,000

Another member carried out purchase contracts, using forged ID cards, signatures were even authenticated by notaries.

In the operation, 81 police officers searched 12 houses and other premises, securing documents connected to the criminal activities, computer technology, USB media, notebooks, and even anabolic steroids.

The perpetrators, identified as Roderik A. (aged 42), Matúš K. (26), Miloš P. (22), Miloš L. (25), Simona L. (28), and Maroš M. (44) are suspected of having caused damage of €600,000 so far, while police check more real estate.

The investigator asked for pre-trial custody for all the charged people. If convicted, they face 10 to 15 years in prison, Sme wrote.
