A thieving Romanian dwarf could be hiding in your holiday luggage
“The Daily Star has a short story on a “thieving Romanian dwarf”.
In “‘Jet Bag’ for dwarf, the Star says a Romanian is being “probed for planning to smuggle a thieving dwarf out of Britian in his plane lugguage”. The man is Doru Apetrei wrote on Facebok. The Daily Mirror has the full text of his appeal in the story headlined “Police investigating ‘plan to smuggle thieving dwarf out of UK in plane luggage'”:
“Good evening! I’ve got a midget friend, 38 inches tall. He’s done a lot of stupid stuff here: he broke into a gas station in Elephant & Castle, also into some houses in Seven King (3 or 4), and he’s done some cards. But I won’t go into details! He’s being looked for here and wants to go back to Romania. He knows I’m leaving on the 11th [of March], so he suggested I put him in my luggage. He’ll add some money to my ticket and extra for the luggage (which is normal, I think!).
“Is there any risk of me getting caught? And if so, what can happen to me? The midget is an adult (he’s 30).”
Mr Apertrei sounds like a bit of a joker.
He might even be posking fun at the British view of Romanians. Here’s a post from a Facebook group for Romanians living in the UK:
Romanians, eh, coming over here and making jokes…
