Cops hunt dwarf thieves

Now, thats just not right. Who would steal little people? Why?!

A GANG of crooks is robbing long-distance coaches by smuggling dwarves into their holds inside sports bags.

Once inside the buses the tiny thieves slip out from their hiding place to rifle through the belongings of travellers above them.

They then take their loot back to their hiding place and wait to be collected by another gang member when the coach reaches its destination.

The gang has stolen thousands of pounds in cash, gems and other valuables over the past several months.

Swebus, which operates coach services across Sweden, confirmed the losses.

“We think it is a short, young person, dwarves or perhaps children,” said Ingvar Ryggasjo, sales manager for Swebus.

“We are taking extra security measures and are thinking of installing video surveillance cameras.”

He said on one occasion a light-fingered litle person was smuggled aboard a bus in a hockey bag.

One woman reported seeing two men squeezing the large, heavy bag into the luggage space under the bus. After arriving she found a camera, purse and other items missing.

Police are quizzing “people of limited stature” with criminal records, according to a spokesman in Stockholm.

OH. Nevermind. Now I get it...

From here.
