Live poker Hannover 96 suspend the three players involved, condemning their actions as “unacceptable” Three footballers on the books at German Bundesliga side Hannover 96 have been arrested this week for conspiring to pull a heist on a gambling hall located in the north German city. According to a report unleashed on Monday by German newspaper Bild, the trio had been en route to the casino armed with balaclavas, air pistols and a vehicle equipped with fake license plates before deciding to back out at the last minute. However, when returning home to re-group after opting out, their vehicle was pulled over and searched by local police who had spotted their unmarked plates. It’s also rumoured they had parked their vehicle in a restricted zone, which led to suspicious pedestrians alerting the authorities. “In addition to a possible attempted robbery charge, the trio also have forged documents and vehicle registration plate theft to answer to, as the vehicle they used had stolen plates attached”, said police spokesman Gabriela Mielke in a statement issued to the press. The three players involved have remained anonymous for now, but it has been confirmed that they are registered to Hannover 96 and have made appearances for the club’s Under 19 team. Hannover 96, currently languishing at the foot of the German top flight, made the following comment via club spokesman Christian Boenig regarding the incident: “We condemn this as a club; it has nothing to do with the moral principles of Hannover 96. We cannot tolerate such behaviour.” Police are continuing with their investigation into the incident.
