Prison Schwalmstadt, Hesse. Otto Schäfer serves here and remembers. He had specialized on the robbery of money transporters after discouraging experiences as a bank robber. He successfully executed this »profession« with four friends. Otto’s »tank-buster gang« committed numerous profitable attacks between 1993 and 1997 in Hesse, Germany. A highlight of their work was the raid on Toom market in Egelsbach, in which the gang captured more than 2 million DM.
