Police in Munich have arrested a man who has been trying to blackmail the FC Bayern Munich since the beginning of carnival season! The man is a well-known 64-year-old bank robber who has spent over ten years in prison for robbing 17 banks. He was trying to get 3 million euros in cash and diamonds from the club making various threats (drone-attack, etc). Bayern officials reported the blackmail and police arrested the man

The suspect Harald Z. is known in Germany as the “Besenstielräuber” (broomstick-robber) for locking up a total of 73 hostages, at multiple robberies, and securing the doors with a broomstick.

In 2011 he wrote and published a book entitled “Ich war der Besenstielbankräuber: Mein gescheiterter Traum” (I was the Broomstick-Robber: My Shattered Dream”). Below is a video of Harald Z. promoting the book.
