Someone has gone to all the effort of unscrewing a dog poo bin to steal it, and no one can figure out why.
The bin, originally located at Fisherman's Cove in East Portlemouth in Devon, was nicked on Tuesday or Wednesday this week and has not been seen since.
Did someone want their own personal poo bin? Was it a prank? Or an elaborate revenge scheme that involves pouring a bin's worth of dog poo somewhere?
WE NEED TO KNOW.
A police spokesperson told the BBC:
"Over the years I've investigated many crimes. Some interesting, some not so. This one is up there on the list."
Brilliantly, Devon and Cornwall police have asked for its return "but not its contents." You've earned those, turd-burglar.
