(Newser) – So you want to break in to a house, but you don't know how to pick locks or bust windows. No problem. Just gain access to a tractor and bust down a wall. That's what a thief or group of thieves did in northwestern Germany Thursday morning, police say. The suspects left the tractor halfway inside the house, the AP reports; in exchange, they removed a safe from the house. Police won't say what was in the safe. The home's residents weren't harmed.
