Photo: Baggage Burglar Contortionist Arrested
One of thieves purchased a single bus ticket and checked his bag into the compartment below the bus, the luggage bag containing his accomplice!
Spanish police had received several complaints from disgruntled bus riders that their goods had been stolen during the bus ride.
Police had a break in the case when a passenger thought she had seen a suspicious man speaking to his bag, and going through great efforts to load it.
Upon inspection, police found a man contorted inside; he had a smaller tote bag for loot, a sharp object used to open zippers and locks, and a cell phone in his hand. He said he didn’t have money for a pass.
Soon after, police apprehended the second man, who checked in the bag, and has filed charges against both men for a long string of luggage robberies.
