Swiss police say thieves have taken a 220lb safe from a youth hostel in a ski resort by apparently using a stolen snowboard to make off with their weighty loot.

Graubuenden police said someone broke into the building in Valbella, in south-east Switzerland, on Monday night and took the safe from the hostel's office, along with an unspecified quantity of cash and cheques.

A snowboard also was taken and police say in a statement that they believe it was used to help spirit away the safe.

Police appealed for information from anyone who might have seen anything suspicious.
