Disappointed Burglar Leaves Angry Note After Not Finding Enough Things To Steal
Madhya Pradesh, India: A thief was so upset at the owner of a house he robbed that he left an angry note for them to read when they returned.
When the homeowner returned home, they found that thousands of rupees and jewelry were stolen.
But the intruder also left a note for them to read, in which he complained about the lack of items to steal.
The note was shared by Anurag Dwary on social media. It reads:
“Jab paise nahi they toh lock nahi karna tha collector”, which means, “When there was no money, it should not have been locked, collector.”

And people quickly took to social media to give their two cents on the burglar’s insolence.
“Only in India can you get scolded by thieves who break into your home,” one person wrote.
