Heists of the Week

Roller Coaster Stolen

Thieves in Bischofsheim, Germany, stole a 20-tonne roller coaster from a car park, where it was in a truck that was taking it to a nearby amusement park.

Officer Martin Gruber said, "We've no idea what the thieves could possibly want with it, and are appealing to the public for help. The last thing we want is for amateurs to try putting it together."

Sod it!

Thieves stole a California homeowner’s entire front yard including grass, bushes and sprinklers.

A suspect was arrested and the landscaping was returned to the victim.
