In the past few days, mail had exploded in the Wild factory in Eppelheim (which produces Capri-Sun, among others) and in the headquarters of the Lidl supermarket chain in Neckarsulm. In Bavaria, the police last intercepted an explosive piece of mail addressed to the baby food manufacturer Hipp.
The first bomb exploded on January 16 at the beverage bottler in Eppelheim and injured an employee. The next day, three Lidl employees were injured.
▶ ︎ According to BILD information, all sender addresses given are student residences – in Ulm, Augsburg and Munich. Three different women’s names were given that are not reported there. The y’re probably fictional. One of the last names is “Merkel”, another “Schwarz” – like Lidl founder Dieter Schwarz (81).
The investigators are currently investigating evidence that was found in the 66-year-old’s house. At the request of the Heidelberg public prosecutor’s office, an arrest warrant was issued and enforced. Now the alleged bomb maker is in custody. He is silent on the allegations.
According to initial findings, it is unlikely that the man sent more letter bombs in the mail.
