Stuffing things in one's coat is a classic and time-honored method of theft, often perpetrated by children stealing gum and baseball cards. But have a look at this gentleman, who police in Great Britain allege, got a little more ambitious on Sunday, stuffing a Venetian blind into his coat and walking out of a home furnishings store in Northampton, England. 

It was pretty subtle and wasn't noticed by anyone.

Just kidding. Staff at the store gave chase, but the thief dropped the blind and escaped. 

No humans were injured in the alleged theft. "The blind was damaged as a result," stated police.

If you know this man or are this man, Northamptonshire police are interested in speaking to you. And maybe also having a laugh.
