Bologna, January 21 - Four people were arrested
Monday in connection with a string of 14 thefts and one armed

The fourth accused was involved in an armed robbery at the
shop last week when the store manager was threatened with a
knife and forced to hand over about 11,000 euros.
Police were helped in solving the thefts by the owner, who
watched video surveillance tapes and realized that lottery
tickets were being stolen while the store clerk was distracted.

drew less attention.
