AMSTERDAM — Thieves stole cash, goods and classified documents about ongoing criminal investigations from the public prosecutor's office (OM) in The Hague over the weekend, police said on Tuesday night.

The burglars targeted the offices of the public prosecution department which specialises in investigating environmental breaches, financial crimes and fraud.

No arrests have been made, police said.

The criminals broke into a secured area of the building on the Enthovenplein, located behind Hollands Spoor train station.

The theft of the documents is especially embarrassing for the public prosecutor's department. A spokeswoman for the OM refused to reveal which documents had been stolen or how the burglars gained entry to the building.

She said it appeared the thieves had only targeted the cash, rather than the confidential files.
