WARSAW, Poland (AP) - Polish police say thieves stole four
Soviet-era tanks that were being used for target practice at an
army test range.
Each weighs more than 20 tons and police suspect they were
stolen for scrap metal.
The T-34 and T-55 tanks were taken Tuesday night from the range
at Jagodne in eastern Poland
Police spokeswoman Anna Smarzak said Thursday that three of the
World War II-era tanks were found at a private car park in Lublin.
The other was found aboard a trailer en route to a steel mill. The
tanks had been stripped of their engines long ago.
Smarzak says that two suspects from the nearby city of Lublin
were being detained and questioned.
