Police: stolen Nazi camp gate probe could be complicated

Norwegian police say the investigation into how an iron gate stolen from the Nazis' Dachau concentration camp in southern Germany ended up in western Norway may be complicated because "no useable evidence" has been found.

Police spokeswoman Kari Bjoerkhaug Trones says the gate with the cynical slogan "Arbeit macht frei" — "Work sets you free" — was found Nov. 28 under a tarpaulin at a parking lot in a settlement north of Bergen, Norway's second-largest city.

Bjoerkhaug Trones said Saturday the gate that was now in police care, had been "there for quite some time with some junk." Police have no suspects.

The concentration camp near Munich was established by the Nazis in 1933. The missing gate originally was set into a larger gate at the camp's entrance.
