A 54-year-old guy in eastern Tennessee is sure two of his neighbors stole more than $1,000 worth of stuff from his home. But it's the way they did it that's making headlines. As Stephen Amaral tells it, the husband and wife came to his house, and the woman asked to swim in his pool, reports the Crossville Chronicle. He said sure, and she then asked hubby to go home and get her cigarettes. When he left, the wife asked permission to swim naked, which she did for 20 minutes in front of the apparently mesmerized Amaral.
It was only after she left that Amaral discovered he'd been had. He told the cops that the husband must have gone through his home while he was watching the swim show. Police have identified the suspects but have yet to make any arrests. WKRN has this awesome, and maybe a little inscrutable, quote from Amaral: "I went and got her a towel; she dried off and all of a sudden she was soaking wet again. I escorted her outside and invited her to church, but she said she didn't have time for that." Click for more in zany thievery—and one creative way of thwarting robbers.
