Mar 12th, 2016: Stuffed Stiffs Stolen

A robbery... or I guess burglary, of a taxidermy warehouse in the Wandsworth Borough of London.
A few miscellaneous antiques were taken, but the vast majority of the 100,000 haul consisted of 18 stuffed animals.



Quote:
The thieves arrived in a Luton van with a grey cab and white body and used angle grinders to force their way into the premises.
For you colonials, a Luton Van would be like a U-Haul truck where the box continues up over the cab. To steal a giraffe, I would think so.
Quote:
Detective Constable Edward Bird said: "This was not a random crime, the burglars had came prepared and well equipped.
This was a criminal enterprise and these thieves need to be stopped before they commit further crimes.
Right on, Bird, this was not a smash and grab, or snatched purse.
Quote:
The items they stole are of high value and are very distinctive.
That's an understatement, they probably all had first names... the critters, not the crooks... well the crooks probably did to but that doesn't make them special. I mean even paupers, heathens, and ne'er-do-wells can have a first name. GET ON WITH IT !

They claim it happened "between 19:20hrs and 19:41hrs", and I'd bet those critters were pre-sold, in a shipping container, and headed
for some Oil Sheik, Russian Oligarch, or Chinese Billionaire, before morning.
But if Brits have any spare time, keep an eye out for a Giraffe or a monkey in a top hat. If you spot one give Bird the Word
