It ain't easy being a Thief

When you're a thief, you have to come up with all sorts of creative things to steal.

And then this guy comes along:

Russian police arrest man for stealing a bridge Fri Aug 31, 5:01 AM ET

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian police have detained a 45-year-old municipal worker for stealing a bridge.

The 5-metre span metal bridge disappeared from a river crossing in the Ryazan region, east of Moscow. Police said they tracked it down to the man, who had used his work truck to remove it and then chopped it up and sold it for scrap.

In a statement, Ryazan region police called it "the bulkiest theft of the year".
