Man Arrested For Stealing Entire Road

22 posts in this topic

A man has been arrested after apparently stealing a complete stretch of road in a remote area of Russia.

The man stole 82 reinforced concrete slabs that formed the route from the village of Parcheg in the republic of Komi to the Vychegda River, the RIA Novosti news agency reported.

It is thought he used an industrial manipulator - a machine that is both a bulldozer and forklift - to dismantle the slabs.

I guess there's nothing better to steal in Russia? Seriously, what thought process ran through that guy's head that eventually led him to steal a road?

In June, another man is reported to have dismantled a bridge over the Nozma River in the village of Frolovo with a welding torch.

On that occasion, a trail of tractor tracks led police to the culprit's home. He also faces a possible two-year jail term.

What's next? A public building?

You have to be pretty desperate to steal a road or na brigde. I wonder if they actually thought they would get away with it.

The Statue of Liberty is made of copper sheeting over steel. The copper is the width of two pennies. Imagine what some enterprising thieves could make if they stole that copper sheeting. I wouldn't be surprised if they tried it before too long. The world is full of thieves.

If it can be exchanged for cash, it will be stolen, too.

Maybe nobody saw anything because that stretch of road was pretty well deserted. I imagine there are roads in the American West that don't see a vehicle for days on end.

I like the one comment: "Only in Russia." This whole things makes me laugh.
