BRAUNSCHWEIG, Germany, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- German authorities say a police van became stuck in wet concrete when it took a wrong turn while chasing some suspected criminals.

Police said the van had to be pulled out by a tow truck, the British newspaper said.

The suspects were apprehended later, investigators said.
