German Police Hunt for 'Stupid' Burglar

German police are searching for the man they say could be the most stupid burglar they have ever encountered. The unknown man broke into the building of a lumber sales company in Bremen during the night and violently assaulted a coffee machine which contained only tokens, despite a sign on the door explaining it did not take cash. He then went on to steal a mobile phone, which only works in the grounds of the company, and a cordless screwdriver - but forgot the batteries and charger. Finally, police say the intruder drank a can of coke -- 12 months past its sell-by date -- that had been standing in one of the offices. A police spokesperson said that the authorities are looking for a man “stranded with a load of useless junk, looks tired, is sick to his stomach and is probably the laughing stock of all his mates.”
