El Salvador cops cuff naked tunnelling blaggers

Hot excavation action

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Two naked would-be blaggers have had their collars felt (in a manner of speaking) in El Salavdor after the tunnel they were digging towards a bank collapsed, provoking an emergency evacuation by the naked ne'er-do-wells.

Their lack of clothing was apparently due to the terrific heat inside the excavation, which stretched 75m from an abandoned house towards the target establishment in San Salvador. When the roof fell in, the men were obliged to make a break for it in their birthday suits, but were quickly cuffed by police who had been monitoring the area due to "reports of mysterious noises", as the BBC puts it.

Miguel Angel Crespin, 22, and Rafael Alberto Cerna, 18, now face robbery charges. They also face having their naked butts spread across cyberspace, since an AP photographer was on hand to capture the sorry end to the heist. The BBC has a pic here. ®
