A Shanghai family returning home from the National Week Holiday discovered that a thief had ransacked their home, stealing food, clothes, and electronics, Xinmin Evening New reports. The most shocking part: he had washed their clothes before he left. Because burglary is one thing, but letting someone go to work with jelly-stained pants is going too far.
The family had reportedly taken a short week-long trip from September 30 to October 3, whereupon they noticed that the LED monitor, clothes, and food items were missing. There were also signs the thief had been cooking. The woman, surnamed Zhao, was most surprised to find that her husbands clothes had been washed and hung to dry.
During a sweep of the house, police found a knife and drug paraphernalia they believed were the suspect’s, and stated the burglar was likely addicted to drugs. If so, he should probably add OCD meds to his repertoire.
