Blog: Leonie BarrieShoplifter caught with trousers down

Leonie Barrie | 27 February 2004

I've just been sent a wonderful Friday afternoon story, translated by Access Asia's Paul French from the Yangtze Evening Post.

A Chinese woman unhappy with the trousers she had stolen from a shop may have erred when she took them back to be shortened.

But the store discovered the trousers were a missing pair and held her until she confessed to her theft.
