These 12 pigs almost went to market

Two thieves were caught in southern Hungary with 12 pigs stuffed in their small van during a routine traffic check, Hungarian police said on Thursday. Police stopped two men in a Renault Kangoo near the town of Szigetvar, about 220 km 137 miles south of Budapest, as they attempted to drive off.

“The pigs weighed about 25-30 kg [55-66 lb] each — they were really squashed into the car very tightly,” a spokesman said.

Police said the pigs came from a nearby farm, where 35 pigs have gone missing in recent days.

Shoplifter crime tip: It’s a lot easier in Germany, apparently

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.
