Police Seek Oswaldtwistle Villains Who Use Hot Tubs Before Stealing

by | 15th, December 2010

DO you know the Oswaldtwistle burglars – The Bubble Bandits – who soak in their victims’ hot tubs before breaking into the residences to steal?

The gang is believed to be behind three such capers. Or is it a movement, a collective who target only gardens with hot-tubs? The Lancashire Telegraph reports:

This week the hot tub pranksters had the nerve [to] take their outdoor bath as Ashley and Cherie Deakin slept upstairs at around 1.30am.

The wet bandits then broke in and relieved the Deakins of a 42” plasma TV, Nintendo Wii console, mobile phones, laptop and wallet.

Mr Deakin recalls an earlier incident in which people trespassed on her garden and helped themselves to hot bubbly water:

“We went round to our neighbours and their hot tub had also been used and the neighbour in between found two pairs of wet underpants in their garden.”

The bandit wears two pairs of pants? Well, it is cold…
