Only a few weeks ago, we heard about the big jewellery heist in London’s Hatton Gardens, and how just a few days ago they arrested nine suspects, and that’s the kind of larger scale theft that we read about. However, we’ve got a slightly more unusual theft to tell you about.
A man was caught with over 1,000 eggs which he’d stuffed into his fridge, using cling film to be able to hold more in the doors, as well as having buckets worth on the floor as well. They are said to have come from the factory where he works, but it’s amazing how he had been able to steal so many whilst working there, without anyone noticing.
If you look closely at the pictures, you may see some writing on the eggs. These are dates to remind him of when he needs to eat his eggs.
What’s a bit more of a shock, is that his job position at the factory, was as security guard, and so he should’ve been stopping thieves, not being the thief. It was after the police stopped him taking two suitcases worth of eggs out of the factory that he was caught. From conducting the investigation, they then found the mass of eggs which he had at home, along with other foods and things that he’d stolen. The security guard even went as far as to say that he had probably stolen pretty much everything in his house.
The company that owns the factory are just as surprised at his activity, and thought that he enjoyed his job, taking the nightshift as he had no family, whilst the true reasons are now clear.
What’s slightly worrying is that the factory didn’t even notice these eggs going missing, however, if taken over a long period of time, 1 or 2 eggs definitely wouldn’t have made any difference. Still, it’s the thought that counts.
