Thief surfs for porn and bemoans poor hygiene

A thief in southern Sweden took time off during a weekend break-in to surf pornographic websites on a company computer and leave a note complaining about unsatisfactory hygiene standards, local newspaper Helsingborgs Dagblad reports.

When arriving at work on Monday, the owner of the targeted company in Påarp noticed that the entrance door had been forced open at some point during the weekend.

Already faced with the prospect of having to procure a new welding machine, the owner also suffered the indignity of being called out for lax sweeping procedures. A message on the company's computer screen spelled out the burglar's considered opinion:

"You need to clean up. Regards, Thief."

But the burglar failed to live up to the standards expected of others, as a range of pornographic websites was left strewn all over the desktop.

Police have so far been unsuccessful in their attempts to track down the hygiene-conscious bandit.
