I swear I find the most interesting articles online..lol

The one I read just a few minutes ago was titled the "You Stole What? 7 Bizarre Items Thieves Love"

Basically, it says that the top 7 items people steal are:

  1. The Bible
  2. Pregnancy Test
  3. Nutella
  4. Hair Extensions
  5. High End Vaccums
  6. Energy Drinks
  7. Tide laundry detergent

I thought this list was pretty random and bizarre, especially the Bible and Nutella.

What is the most bizarre thing you have ever heard of being stolen?

stealing a family bible from a home makes sense if it is a creative thief: there is a ton of information in a family bible.  Maiden names, birth dates, etc.  Also some may hide cash in the pages.

Pregnancy test - from a store... they are expensive for some.  Maybe that is the reason?

nutella.... got me on that one

hair extensions.... I have heard of this.  They are VERY VERY expensive and there is no way to track them.  There is no identifying numbers.  This is a HUGE issue, I heard a whole NPR story on it.

vacuums.... again, got me... seems like a large item to steal... but I DO need a new vacuum and would love one cheap. lol

energy drinks - lol - all I can think of is the drug user who is coming off a high?  

Tide -hummmm - wonder if they can use that in a marketing campaign.

Bibles are stolen so often. My friend owns a Christian store and has security cameras on the Bibles. It is really sad. I would have never guessed that as a highly swipped thing.

Thou shall not steal.......a bible? LOL Doesn't surprise me though.

How would you hide a vaccum in your pants is beyond me.

I've heard about the Tide before, I guess it has a high resale value on the street.

Well bibles are at hotels and churches so Im sure people just take them. Heck they are at the 99 cent store too.

I always found it funny that hospital TV's were drilled into the wall - like really? Are you going to slip a TV under your jacket?
