Wurst case scenario: hot dog bites supermarket burglar


There's an old saying that it's a bad idea to go shopping when you're hungry. Now we find it's that way for burglary, too. An otherwise successful German burglar has been taken down by a bite of sausage.

In February, burglars broke into a supermarket in Anspach by breaking down a door. They tried the office safe and couldn't get in, but they did take €300 worth of cigarettes with them. And one of the burglars, unable to resist a delicious temptation, took a hefty bite out of a pork sausage in the meat department.

Fast forward to last Tuesday, when police announced they had solved the supermarket robbery when they arrested the hungry burglar for another crime, and matched his DNA to traces he left on the half-eaten sausage.
