Camera thief caught on film

Note to all self-respecting thieves considering stealing a surveillance camera: it is watching you while you work.

That may be lesson number one from the beginner’s school of crime but the young man who set his heart on the security camera in a McDonald’s restaurant in Oskarshamn on Thursday was clearly not top of the class.

To the amusement of police in the town, the camera’s film revealed a guilty face with unusual clarity.

According to local paper Oskarshamns-Tidningen, police are now hunting the unwitting film star – and do not need further witnesses.
