Cops cuff rectal shoplifter

Bum rap

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Police in the Czech Republic have arrested a man who attempted to steal a digital music player by concealing it in his anus.

The thief was caught when the shoplifting alarm rang loud and proud at the supermarket he had entered in the town of Prerov.

Nabbed by staff, he was found to have a pair of earphones stashed in his slacks.

Yet the earphones had no alarm-system tag. What had cause the bell to ring? Searching the man more thoroughly, security guards uncovered a tube of lube in his pocket.

You can see where this is going, can't you?

Yes, the presence of the slidey, glidey substance prompted an intimate inspection of certain nooks and crannies - and thus the missing music player came to light, local tabloid iDnes reports.

The thief was later found to have a "colourful" criminal record and done time inside.

Police hope he is not part of a organised crime ring. ®
