Thief in the Bureau of Criminal Investigations!
The local Heidelberg rag - the Rhein Neckar Zeitung - has always been a source of pleasure. A while ago I reported on the amusing article about the Natural Healing Club in Spechbach, and this last visit to Heidelberg revealed another gem.
Apparently, the "Thueringer Landeskriminalamt" i.e. the local Bureau of Criminal Investigations, suspected a toilet paper thief in their own building in Waltesleben. Their suspicions had been aroused after complaints by the cleaning personnel. So, in the beginning of 2011, they installed a hidden camera in the place where the rolls were kept. However, the film was never processed because there were no further thefts. The personnel and workers were informed only after the fact.
Elementary, my dear Watson..
