Chinese master crims leg it with 60kg in coins

100 cops pursue small change marathon men

Security for virtualized datacentres

Two Chinese master criminals were pursued for three kilometres by 100 cops after rather brilliantly deciding they could do a runner from a Qingdao hotel with 60kg of small change.

According to the Qingdao Morning News, the pair, "sweating profusely", huffed and puffed their way to a cuffing bearing the breathtaking haul of 6,000 yuan (392 quid) in coins, cunningly concealed in sacks.

The Boys in Blue later discovered they'd stashed another 15,000 yuan (£982) back at the hotel. The targeted establishment apparently kept the shrapnel "as change for customers".

Regular readers can see where this plan came unstuck - any self-respecting Brit ne'er-do-well would have used a wheelbarrow for his getaway. This wouldn't actually increase his chances of making good his escape, but would multipy the news comedy value by a factor of around 3.7. ®
