Due to German privacy laws, we don’t know their last name, but that isn’t all that German law protects them from. After robbing the Kaufhaus Des Westens (Europe’s second largest department store), they accidentally left behind a single glove.

Since police couldn’t determine which brother’s DNA was on the glove, and neither brother was willing talk…the police were forced to let both go free. According to Der Spiegel, it was the perfect crime.
