What the…how the… Glacier thief? Maybe human activity is to blame for the retreat of at least one ice sheet.
Police in Chile have arrested a man on suspicion of stealing five tonnes of ice from the Jorge Montt glacier in the Patagonia region to sell as designer ice cubes in bars and restaurants.
Local media reported that last Friday police intercepted a refrigerated truck with an estimated £3,900 worth of illicit ice allegedly bound for whiskies, rums and cocktails in the capital Santiago.
Authorities have accused the driver of theft and are considering adding violation of national monuments to the charge sheet.
Somebody somewhere just lost out on one heckofa party. But here do you even get the idea to go off and steal a glacier?
Honestly, I blame Hollywood. And Andy Griffith.
