(Newser) – A crew of cheeky British bandits has an unusual MO: Find homes with hot tubs, enjoy a soak, then steal the owners' luxury goods—and leave their wet undies behind. The bizarre gang has stolen thousand of dollars in cash and property, reports the Telegraph. “There is a serious side to this, even though some people might find it amusing," said a Lancashire police spokesman. One of the victims declared: "It takes some nerve to use the hot tub before breaking in. You would expect most burglars would want to get in and out of a house as quickly and quietly as possible."
