Drugged Gang Barges into House in South Iceland

Four intoxicated persons barged into a house in Hveragerdi, south Iceland, the night before last. The gang threatened the inhabitants, a couple in their forties, and claimed they were collecting a debt.

The man of the house managed to throw the people out and then called the police. The police found the perpetrators shortly afterwards in a private home in the town and arrested them, visir.is reports.

The gang, one woman and three men, were questioned yesterday after they had sobered up inside the prison in Selfoss. The police told mbl.is that it doesn’t appear as if they had a bone to pick with the couple whose home they had broken into.
