Contortionist hid in suitcase to steal in bus cargo hold

The Daily Mail reports on an ingenious theft ring in Spain.

For weeks detectives were baffled as to how so many items were being regularly stolen on the bus route between Girona airport and Barcelona, in Catalonia, north east Spain.

Last Friday they were alerted by a suspicious member of the public to a large suitcase of 90cm by 50cm  that had just been loaded on the bus.

When they opened it up the shocked officers found the 1.78m man curled up inside.
