Man jailed for 12 months for stealing his neighbours carpet. 

Carpet Thief Cartoon

Last week a Lowestoft man was jailed for 12 months for stealing his neighbours carpet. In a dazzling display of criminal master-mindery, he then relaid the carpet in his own home....5 doors away.

The 26 year old man, smashed a bathroom window and entered the property where he ripped up the carpet and underlay worth 726.  He also stole a television, a remote control and some other items.  

Police were alerted when a neighbour heard suspicious noises coming from the property and called the owner, who then alerted the police. They caught up with and arrested the man after a latex glove containing his DNA was found at the scene. 

Carpet theft is not unheard of.  There has been at least one other case reported in the US.
