Swedish police are quizzing "people of limited stature" with criminal records following a spate of robberies from the cargo holds of coaches - possibly carried out by dwarves smuggled onboard in sports bags.

According to the Sun, the gang responsible pack their vertically-challenged accomplices into bags and stick them in with other passengers' luggage. The undercover operatives then rifle the hold for valuables before resealing themselves in their hiding place, to be extracted later by another gang member at the coach's final destination.

This is...awesome. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of "little people" suddenly find themselves thinking of situations where they can sneak into and out of places that normal people can't. I suspect many crime sprees to pop up soon all inspired by this.

Sincerely,

I read about this, and yes, it is pretty awesome.

I wonder how much good loot they'd get though, having valuables in hold luggage is just spelling out FOOLISHNESS in gigantic font size.

Haha! Too true!

It's kinda disturbing, knowing some shrimp could be going through your belongings while you're listening to your MP3 player on the plane.

No need, Striker. They stink so much they make skunk's smell seem like deodorant.

I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to.I guess. 
Out here in Saskatchewan we have a bit of folklore about badgers. You hit one with a car, it's not dead, it's just playing dead, so the next time you come by, it'll take you out.

Don't Duck with badgers.

I hit a badger? I did, but surely you guys don't know about it... It pwned our car though, apparantly that's the great new safety feature they're bringing into all new cars, if the slightest bit of strain is put on any point in the car it crumples up into a structure no bigger than a two pence piece to absorb the damage and protect the inhabitants.

Badgers are seriously dicks though, they're like the football hooligans of the animal kingdom (one nearly killed my dog).
