Shoplifter With No Arms Steals 24 Inch Television


Germany: A shoplifter with no arms has walked straight out of a Munich retailer with a 24" television having been assisted to clamp the set to his chest by two other people. It wasn't until later that the missing set was noticed and CCTV reviewed.

"Staff only knew about the theft after they saw one of the display TVs had been taken off its stand. It's hard to believe that the sight of an armless man walking along with a giant TV clamped to his body did not get anyone's attention," said police.

I need a video to believe this.

if it was a flat panel, maybe he was wearing bulky clothing. Hopefully the CCTV video will be released. Pretty bad security if it was an old tube-type TV...

Bulky clothing? The guy had a 24" TV strapped to his torso, even if he was wearing bulky clothing, surely someone would have seen him! For a start, I'm amazed nobody caught him in the act of clamping the thing to himself! Most of the electrical stores here have the TVs and things chained down and alarmed anyway.

At one of our local Walmarts, a group of thieves went to the toy department and emptied a couple of large boxes. Then they took the empty boxes to electronics. They had their own key to the laptop cabinet and emptied it. They put $16,000 dollars worth of new laptops into the boxes and wheeled them right out the front door without even being noticed. They still haven't caught the culprits.

Not even close. There have been quite a few over 30k, a couple over 100k and 1 that went into the millions. It is very nice though.

Very deductive and clever comment Damien. Shows how to think outside of the square.
Shall we consider this act a Feet Accomple' and that when caught his liberty should be four feeted?
