The burglar who breaks into homes by biting through steel bars!June 15th, 2009 - 4:58 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, June 15 (ANI): Chinese cops were left stunned after they caught a burglar who could break-in through caged windows by simply biting the steel bars.
According to Ananova, detectives in Nanjimen region, Chongqing, were baffled by the series of break-ins through caged windows.
“Through our investigations, we found the grids had been cut but with deep tooth prints,” the Daily Telegraph quoted a police spokesman as telling Chongqing Business Daily.
Further inquiries led them to interview a man who revealed that he was sharing a hotel room with a man who could crack walnuts with his teeth.
The cops brought in the man named Xiong, 23, who confessed that he was behind the burglaries.
Xiong said that he became a burglar after failing to find a job.
“I only failed once in the past two years. Once I bit on a 2cm thick steel grid, and the first bite nearly dislocated my jaw,” he said.
“I never take other tools with me when breaking in. That’s why I never got stopped by patrolling officers at night,” he added. (ANI)
