Thieves broke into Dresden's Grünes Gewölbe museum and stole priceless treasures, worth 1 million euro.

The eastern German museum, known as the Green Vault, houses one of Europe's largest collection of treasures, says a news report.

Two thieves were seen on camera entering through a window and later escaping in a vehicle. The report said that thieves stole at least three priceless 18th-century jewelry sets.

The thieves allegedly set fire to a power box in order to turn off the power which would shut down the alarm systems. According to Bild, the looters then entered the treasury through a corner window.
