Man Steals Entire Road and Escapes in Three Lorries

By Gary Cutlack on at

A Russian man has been arrested for theft after he was apprehended trying to steal a... a... road. The road used to link the village of Parcheg with the Vychegda River, before the bloke lifted the 82 concrete slabs that made it and disappeared off with them.

Sadly, this is a rare case of an event happening in Russia that wasn't captured by someone's in-car dashboard camera, so we have no real idea of the scale of these slabs. Authorities say some sort of heavy machinery was involved, as even Russian men aren't that hard. [Ria Novosti via Boing Boing]
