A beautiful influencer stole more than EUR one million from a security truck driven by her mum’s lover in two minutes a court has heard.
Stefanie Fischer, 28, who flaunted her luxury lifestyle on social media, reportedly stole the cash from the truck at the Kaufland parking lot in the town of Cham in the German state of Bavaria on 17th April.
Fischer, who was dressed in a green jacket and black leggings, then ran to her mother named as Petra F., 52, who was waiting in her black BMW 3 Series nearby.
The two women then drove home to the village of Ascha and hid the money among Fischer’s items in her two dressing rooms.
Petra F.’s lover, named only as Karl B., 56, who was the driver of the CIT truck, was part of the plot with the two women, according to local media.
His colleague went to a supermarket when he remained alone in the vehicle.
But CCTV footage caught Fischer entering the truck at 9:29am and stealing the cash while her mother’s lover was there, according to local media.
Karl B. told the court: “I explained to her which buttons she had to press so that I could go into the lock and no alarm would go off.”
Prosecutor Oliver Kugler said: “At 9.31 a.m. Stefanie F. set off on foot with the bag to meet defendant Petra F, who was waiting about 700 metres (2,296 feet) away in the black BMW 316 with Straubinger license plates, as agreed.”
However, when Fischer left with the cash, the alarms activated and Karl B. was unable to deactivate them and started to panic, according to local media.
He said he told his colleagues: “I think we’ve been attacked. My colleague didn’t want to believe me. I sent him to the vault. He said, yes, really, the savings bank money is gone.
“I couldn’t talk anymore and I urinated a little in my pants.”
Nine days after the theft, the police tracked down Fischer and her mother and found the money inside their home, among Fischer’s items.
The cash was hidden in various places like in the car, in various handbags, next to high-heeled pumps, or among lingerie, according to local media.
Commissioner Florian L. told the Regensburg regional court on Friday, 27th October: “In the jackets, pockets, between drawers – there were banknotes everywhere.”
Fischer and Petra F. reportedly made confessions at the beginning of the trial.
The trial is ongoing.
