22-ton Bridge Stolen

Has anybody seen the bridge? Sometime since yesterday, an entire bridge was taken from a village in Turkey.

The 22-ton bridge, which was 25 meters long, was in a village in Kocaeli's Gölçük district and was regularly used by villagers to cross a creek to reach their orchards. The villagers were astonished to discover the disappearance of the bridge on Monday morning as they were making their way to the orchards and immediately alerted the police.

Police arrived at the scene and determined that the bridge had been cut apart and loaded onto a truck by the thieves. They believe the bridge was stolen for scrap metal. Its worth was an estimated TL 20,000.

They took apart a 22-ton, 25 meter long metal bridge overnight, loaded the pieces on to trucks, and no one in the village heard anything? Wouldn't that make an incredible amount of noise?
