Bank rob­ber’s wee mis­take

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

A SWEDISH bank rob­ber left three bot­tles of urine be­hind af­ter hid­ing in­side a bank vault in Copen­hagen, Den­mark, for three days. The man, 27, and his ac­com­plice used the bot­tles to re­lieve them­selves af­ter sneak­ing into the vault on a Fri­day in May and staying there un­til the bank opened the fol­low­ing Mon­day. They emp­tied 140 safety de­posit boxes of at least $ 500,000 in cash and jew­ellery, but they for­got to take the urine, so authorities were able to get their DNA sam­ples. His ac­com­plice is still at large and the loot hasn’t been re­cov­ered.
