Practical, or Outlandish?
Criminal gangs are using dwarves in a ruse to steal
from the luggage holds of long-distance coaches, by hiding them inside
suitcases, according to police.
crime is on the rise in Sweden and officers say thieves have got away
with thousands of pounds in cash, jewellery and other valuables in
Gangs are said to sneak the dwarves into the luggage hold, hidden inside baggage. Then,
once the journey has begun, the stowaways are free to rifle through the
bags of other passengers without fear of being apprehended.Before
the coach arrives at its destination the dwarves take their loot back
into their suitcase, zip themselves inside and wait to be collected by
their partners in crime.
I do love the line from the police spokesman quoted in the piece: “We are looking at our records to identify criminals of limited stature.” Ha, er, yeah….
