The man took his time browsing around the shop, which is called Ladyland and located in central Sundsvall, in June last year.

Store employees recalled him as friendly and chatty, according to local paper Sundsvalls Tidning.

However, upon leaving, the 18-year-old set off the store's anti-shoplifting alarm.

A search of the man revealed he had pocketed a so called nipple chain, worth some 119 kronor ($18).

The bust-adorning piece of jewelry consisted of two hooks to be fastened on the wearer’s nipples, with a chain running in between.

When questioned by police, the 18-year-old said that he had “forgotten to pay for the item”, claiming that the shopkeeper was overreacting, according to the paper.

However, the man had earlier texted the owner of the shop, saying “sorry I tried to steal from you”.

The 18-year-old was caught shoplifting again in February when he nicked three diet bars from a local supermarket.

When asked why he was stealing, the teen said that he had been having a bad time at home recently and that the reason he stole was to feel a sense of achievement, reported the paper.

He should have just pinched her nipple!

Well, it does seem a bit odd (but they were probably waiting for the opportunity to use that image) be glad your getting this instead of this;

"2 teens charged in slaying of 6-year-old in Little Village

Two teenagers were charged with the murder of a 6-year-old girl in Little Village who was likely caught in the middle of a gang shooting, police said Sunday. ..."

That's tops for Chicago news this weekend.

This is just ridiculous new and journalism, I can expect this kind of news in kabul or siria or in any god forsaken land ;) not here!!!

Chill out guys - we got to see a very nice picture with said article...everyone's happy!

This begs the question of what other kind of dubious photos TL have in their computers, other than a close-up of a surgically-enhanced (you can see the scars) tart.

The most news worthy part of this story are the following comments. Come on 'The Local' at lease find something interesting. You hooked us with the photo and fell short on the story. If he stole a vibrator and it accidentally turned on as he was leaving the store, then there's a story....

A lack of industry AND dishonest. I mean, how hard can it be to make your own nipple-chain from readily available household utensils? Tsk, tsk, todays youngsters, such a sorry sight..
16:12 March 19, 2012 by entry
While the article photo is not too hard to look at, the concept of chaining nipples together strikes me to fall into the category of 'running with scissors'. People tattoo their faces....

@zooeden et al.

You can't expect too much from a new source which also has a story titled;

"Busty Swede 'loses' boob in mud wrestling mishap"

However, today's top Chicago breaking news stories are;

"Body found in car trunk on West Side"

"Man gunned down outside Lawndale home"

"Police question 2 in slaying in West Humboldt Park"

"Maywood man found fatally shot in alley"

"Eight held, injuries reported during Ford Heights melee"

"Prosecutors: Man shoots at crowd, wounding 2, after sister gets in fight"

"1-year-old and mother suffer graze wounds in South Side shooting"

"Slain 6-year-old girl among 5 shot within an hour in Chicago"

"16 shot, 1 dead, in overnight violence"

"Morning bank robbery in Wicker Park"

"Prisoner shot during escape attempt in Rolling Meadows"

"Police: Man exchanges gunfire with CHA guard"

"3 charged in connection with Wednesday night West Side shootout"

And that's just today, and they don't publish everything here because there just isn't space or time, so, in a way, I guess I'd be happy to live someplace where the news had space for whimsical tales instead of a constant stream of death and destruction.

One man's tart is another man's and another's and another's... :)


I agree. He's obviously no fisherman. :(


Run away. Run far far away! Chicago's been horrible for centuries. The Indians probably cursed it when the government "removed" them. (I know I would have.)
18:56 March 19, 2012 by SecondGen

Na, it's amazing how you can be 3 miles from the violence and never see it except on TV or the news.

They aren't done with the weekend tally yet apparently but as of now it stands at;

"At Least 10 Dead, Dozens Wounded In Weekend Violence"

sense of achievement my arse!

It sort of helps me to be more unashamed of my growing belly and 'reading glass denial syndrome'. ..I'm usually used to Locals getting their ears cut off in beach fights and then tazer'd by the cops .. nipple chains huh? must be something from Denmark or some place where most chicks have attachment points?

I hope this guy had something else in his pants for his gf when he got home.

if its good for the goose......

I will happily pinch his girl but not that into jewellery really.

#13, you took the type right off my keyboard.

Two things you left out:

"You can find these stories in Section P / pg.17-18" (it's not even news in Chitown)



"Rahm Emanuel saves Chicago with higher tax rate on the working"

"60% of the people in Chicago turn off Wheel of Fourtune to go get check."

Sub story;

Rahm caught on open mike talking to Detroit mayor, "We want to be just like you!"

"60% of the people in Chicago loot convience stores"
