What The Hell Wednesday - Cramped Crook

Every once in a while we will go to no length for a story. In this case no pun intended we travel all the way to Spain where thievery  gets verrrry creative and we love creativity here at the house of Monkey okay, I just made that last part up.

Contortionist thief caught hiding in suitcase on Spanish airport bus

A contortionist used his skills to steal valuables from travelers as they stowed their luggage in the undercarriage of an airport bus, but was eventually caught when his accomplice left him behind.

Flexible crook Krzysztof Grzegorz would hop into a suitcase and be placed underneath the Barcelona airport transfer bus by a friend who would purchase a one-way ticket.

While in the luggage hold Grzegorz would let himself out and steal items such as laptops and jewelery as the bus made an hour long journey from Girona airport to Barcelona city center.

Once they arrived the bag containing Grzegorz would be picked up and taken away without a fuss.

Shocked victims would constantly report missing items only after they had arrived at their hotel, but detectives were left scratching their heads as to how they went missing in such a short space of time.

The cunning pair were eventually busted when 29-year-old Grzegorz's partner in crime refused to pick up the suitcase and left him beneath the bus.

After police were called they opened up the suspicious case to find him clutching a device to break zippers, a mobile phone and a head light so he could see in the dark.

Oh my God! Don't you just love how many zees this guy has in his name? He is obviously NOT from Spain. Just a gut feeling, but definitely not from Spain. That must be why he finds it so easy to steal from them. Maybe he is still angry about something from the Inquisition. Surely someone with a sense of history will go off on me about that last statement.

So, one dude stuffs another guy into a suitcase and shoves him into the smelly, exhaust filled belly of a transit bus. Who has the better job here?

"Okay, Krzysztof, my friend, curl up in dees little box and I vill pick hue up in an howare. No an oxygen mask von't be neeted. Just fill up dees bag and hop back into dee suitcase. Really! I vill come and get hue." I have no idea what that was...but it is some sort of accent.

Sure! Honor among thieves.

Apparently Krzysztof's partner had determined he no longer wanted to share the loot. No splitsies. No halfsies. Not anymore. Someone had a plan and someone was a pawn. Imagine that.

But really. How did Krzysztof we will just call him Krazy Kz from here get OUT of the suitcase? AND...how did he get back IN? So Krazy Kz must be small or the suitcase it really big. Zipper tab on the inside? Hmmm.  Ya think.

Well, regardless, when Krazy Kz realized he wasn't going to be picked up - literally in every sense of the word - then got arrested. He must have said "Vat da Hell?"

It never ceases to amaze me the lengths that people will go to for a dishonest buck. If these same people would put the time, effort, and thought into something legitimate as they do in criminal activity, they would be a success. But nope, everyone has to have an angle, and take the easy route.

This is the kind of thing that happens when the split isn't 50/50. KrazyKz probably kept a ring or something for himself. Leaving him there either sounds like a flat tire or a pay back move.

Thanks for the SPAM Griya Mobil. You must be related to the two characters in this story.

That Krazy Kz is so INTERESTING! I honestly felt like I couldn't breathe well while reading that post. I felt like I was in the suitcase or something. You find the craziest stories. You and Krazy Kz would be a good team!

Goodness. Hey, isn't there a GREGORY in your family line? Hmmm. Maybe he's a distant third cousin twice removed? How crazy would that be???

All I could think about when I was reading about laptops being one of the items stolen was, "WHo doesn't have their laptop strapped to their body at all times?"

Wouldn't you think he'd realise he'd been abandoned and leg it before he was caught? How stupid can you get?

Cool story.
