Dumb Criminals

London Bridge

Sunday, May 13th, 2012 • Filed under Forgery, Theft

So this sounds like something straight out of Despicable Me. Which is great, because who doesn’t wanna read about those adorable eyeballed Twinkie-like creatures? LOSERS, that’s who.

Losers also steal odd things, especially in the Czech Republic. Oh, those Czechs. According to The Telegraph, metal thieves managed to dismantle and steal a 10-ton bridge. And not a Lego one. How? The crooks handed over forged paperwork claiming that the bridge had to be torn down. Those who signed the check didn’t realize until too late that they had been bridge-napped.  So now what? Having 10 tons of scrap metal seems just as much of an inconvenience as losing it.
