An interesting robbery occurred yesterday at the Judicial Forensic Medical
Center in Istanbul's Yenibosna district. An individual around 30 years old
came to the Chemical Speciality Office, where the evidence for critical cases,
murders and death incidents is held, with measuring tape and other supplies.
He told everyone 'Quick, get out of here. I'm going to install a drinking
fountain and I have to set it in silicon.' The thief took valuables and money
The unknown intruder moved past security freely and first went to the
office of Chemical Specialty Office chief Dr. Mahmut Aşırdizer, advising
him to leave his office while he installed the drinking fountain. The clever
thief then stole the wallet, cellphone and other valuables he found in
Dr. Aşırdiver's drawer, desk and jacket. Using the same technique, he
robbed the personnel in other rooms.
The robbery came to light when a message came to Dr. Aşırdiver's
cellphone (!) alerting him that a large amount of money had been
withdrawn from his bank via his credit card. It was understood, as well,
that gold purchased with money collected for the wedding next month
of a worker in the Chemical Specialty Office went missing. Police
took possession of video images related to the incident.

Gürsoy Erinci (31), who robbed the Judicial Forensic Medical
Center in Yenibosna, where the evidence for critical cases is kept,
on 22 November was captured while enjoying himself at a 'pavyon'
(cheap nightclub). Erinci explained that 'I was working at a company
that supplied water to the Judicial Forensic Medical Center before
I went to prison. Once in a while I brought the water there myself
so I identified myself as a company member and entered. After I
left I bought a cellphone money card and a suit with the credit card.
I also cashed in the jewelry.'
On 22 November, Erinci had entered the office of E.A. and took
2,000TL worth of jewelry from her handbag. Then he went to the
office of the chief, Dr. Mahmut Aşırdizer, and stole the wallet in
the drawer there.
