Burglars kiss to celebrate theft

What do burglars do after stealing? Most ran away immediately, but there are a few exceptions, such as the one who cleaned his bowl after stealing instant noodles. For a couple of thieves, the first thing they did was to celebrate their "victory" with a kiss, West China Metropolis Daily reported.

The burglars have been captured kissing at the scene of the crime for five minutes after robbing an accessory store in Zigong, Southwest China's Sichuan province.

"They did not seem like professionals as they didn't target valuable stuff," Gong said. The manager of the shop, Mrs Gong, said the thieves only took 2,100 yuan ($335.8 dollars) in cash, together with perfume bottles and a couple of pieces of inexpensive jewelry on the shelves.

The surveillance camera captured 20 minutes of footage of the burglars at the store. The case is now under investigation.

Another unusual thief is the protagonist of our next story, who was so moved by his victim's generosity he returned a wallet he stole through the media.
