UK Restaurant Thefts

By Iron Chef Leftovers

I have head of thieves breaking into restaurants to steal booze, money and food (yep – there is a major black market for spendy ingredients), but furniture, and just the furniture, that is a new one:

A Thai restaurant has been “left one chair” after almost all its furniture was taken in an “unusual burglary”, police have said.

Thirteen tables and 25 chairs were taken from The Thai Cafe in Saltford, near Bath, between 12 and 15 January.

Police said there was “no clear explanation” for the theft, but the items may have been stolen “to order”.

Really? They left one chair? Why?

It gets a little more odd:

Mr Appleby, who took over the restaurant 10 years ago, said the theft was “weird” as no wine, beer or spirits had been taken.

“The chairs were quite old, 12 to 13 years old, they came with the cafe,” he said.

Hmmm. Maybe it is the New Yorker in me, but this sounds a bit fishy.
