This are most likely East European gangs, from within the EU (Poland, Romania) or further from Belarus and other Baltic states.
Evidence for this statement please
I spoke with police present, after the last time it happened here at my local mall. Also I have some friends working for the police, I spoke with them also. No links, just this.
I don’t think anyone in The Netherlands will dispute we have a problem with organized crime from Eastern Europe. Also many (organized) criminals from Northern Africa, but -in general- they do other crimes (mainly drug mafia).
We are in an open border union with them, crime is attracted to the rich countries. Even more when the police is lacking funds to do their job.
