Stealing....

Recommended Posts

You mean like the time I was asked to "help" one well-known local musician retrieve some items from a disused building & when I turned-up, he was dressed in the full kit - Black from head to toe, black balaclava & face mask. o_O

And yes, we were manhandling an item of some value out of a window when the police drew-up & asked what we were up to.

Thankfully he was blessed with a silver tounge & the officers left us to it! :)

A girl in my primary took a hamster and some slugs from the sciency bitty of our shitty open planned school, and they were found in her desk about 3 days later.

I was about 5. This came as quite a shock and the girl moved to Skye a few weeks after. I don't know whether they were related.

sorry, i'm not a thief so have no funny stories for you. perhaps you could care to share some of your own tales of stealing things that don't belong to you?

hopefully someone will have a hilarious story about the time they stole some of my gear from drummonds though.

I've had a guitar stolen from me. I didn't think that was particularly funny either, however, there are some funny stories, like I got told by some staff members of RnB that they had a guy try to steal a guitar once, they saw him come in, and were watching him, he spent ages up the back and then tried to leave, bearing in mind they were watching him, so he got out the door before being stopped for having a plastic bag, which the guitar body was in and he had the neck up his sleeve.

that to me is funny, i mean what the fuck!?

what was the guy expecting to happen?

Or another one involving one of the little darlings I used to work with.

He had just held-up a shop & was making an escape with his ill gotten gains. Running round the corner, he ran slap bang into one of my colleagues who was based in the area who promptly said something along the lines of "Bloody hell ***** what are you in such a hurry for. Oh & why have you got that stocking over your head." Yup, he had chosen a stocking so sheer, it did very little to disguise his identity!

Without stopping to chat, he took-off in the opposite direction & ran down a street & through some bushes. Where he threw his weapon away, ripped the stocking off his head & tried to stuff the cash that was now spilling out all over the place, back into his jacket.

Then he turned round, to find an entire long bus queue watching him with great interest!

7 years! :D

Someone came into my work one afternoon and turned the security camera at the end the meat aisle round, then left. An hour later he came back in with a metal flip-lid bin and filled it up with joints of beef, and walked straight out with just under 100 quids worth. Unfortunately he forgot about the security camera at the other end of the aisle.

There's a guy that goes round Tesco stores (and maybe other supermarkets...), stealing TV's. He asks for the largest, most expensive HD TV that particular store has (often the most expensive item in the shop). He'll get it in it's box from non-food peeps and put it in his trolley.

He'll walk around the supermarket for a wee while, then go to the front door and say something along the lines of, "my girlfriend/wife/brother etc, is doing a bit more shopping, but I was hoping to put this in the car just now", he'll produce a receipt of some kind and wave it about a bit. Because of the security tag on the box or within the box, he'll then say the whole thing won't fit in his boot, and can he just take the tele boxless.

Supermarket staff being as they are, accept all this and in the case of our shop, haul folk off check-outs and get the security guy to help carry the TV to this guy's car. He drives off with free television.

It took our store a good couple of days to realise this had happened, I think it's timed a wee bit before sales are totalled for the week/month/period etc, just guessing though. Managers in particular, were a wee bit embarassed, and the staff that helped him were "re-trained". :)

I laughed lots and lots and lots when I heard all of this. :popcorn:

Couple of years ago when our store still sold TV's some boy just walked out with the biggest one we had in his trolley. No one stopped him I assume because they all assumed he'd paid for it. So he just walked straight out with it.

Must have some grapefruits to try that.

I'm too much of a pus-sey to steal anything. I'm always totally paranoid about getting my gear nicked as well, especially at The Moorings where they make you leave it downstairs, out of sight, and with a side door where other bands can load their stuff in and out. :down:

I used to nick free gifts (Videos/CDs/Toys) off magazines at my local shop.

Thought I was the slyest person ever until one day I was in browsing, not thinking of stealing anything, when the shopkeeper said "hope you're not gonna take any more free gifts, sonny" and pointed to the security camera in the roof. (One of those dome ones)

I was probably about 6 or 7.

our rugby club is right next to Hazlehead academy and the estates around that area... not a particularly rough place, has its fair share of gobshites nonetheless.

anyway, sometimes the coaches forget to lock the home changing when we're playing a match on a saturday and we've had a few things stolen. last saturday this happened again, a few phones some watches and some cash were nicked.

after the match one of the player's lady friends text him asking when he was coming home only to get a reply of "this isn't his phone anymore, because i've just nicked it. so please don't call or text it again." cheeeky bastard!

This creepy bastard broke in to my house once while I was at home. I grabbed him and escorted him out the house and started trying to take his jacket to get my goods back but he ran across Queens' Road yelling "you fucking crazy bitch!" To which I replied "and don't you fucking come back!" Turns out he only took an old smashed rolex from my ungratetful brat era.

He hasn't been back : [

.

Also if you stole something why would you brag about it on the internet?

I've got a bedroom full of (road) signs, posters and notices from long walks home after 3pm.

I once pinched a cone and got a load of strangers to sign it for a friend that 'was in hospital and not doing too well'. After about 30 minutes on Belmont st it was covered in "Get ell soon" messages but it got re-confiscated by the police and is probably sitting on a motorway somewhere...

Those light afternoon strolls are a perfect opportunity to steal road signs...

I once stole packet of chewing gum. Rebel, yeah!

I used to work in a few shops when I was at school and you saw some amazing stuff. My favourite was during a stint an Internacionale. Some mink came in and stole a pair of pants by taking them into the changing room and then leaving the pants she had on previously on the return to rack rail. The pants she left were covered in blood stains. Nae nice. You got some amazing minkers in there.
