Four persons were arrested in the U.K. for attempting to steal a Thomas The Tank Engine ride.
The chief of police was thoroughly impressed with their ambition.
Here's what the police chief said:
"It's not exactly the crime of the century. All four suspects, aged 31 - 37, two men and two women remain in custody."
The details of the attempted crime were bizarre, to say the least.
"Police in Lambeth have arrested three people for theft and one other for theft and going equipped to steal a Thomas the Tank Engine ‘sit-on’ ride from outside a supermarket on Kennington Lane SE11 on Tuesday 27 November at approximately midnight."
We guess they should nickname this one, The Great Toy Train Robbery.
