Bizarre news from all over the world never ceases to surprise us, and this latest news piece was no different. A Brooklyn-based school was the victim of a robbery, but rather than valuables, the thief stole food. The Yeshiva Alexander School on 15th Avenue in Borough Park, New York City reported a theft of food on 15th March, 2021. The female robber walked in through the school's open front door in the evening, as reported by the New York Post. The entire food theft was caught on camera by the school's surveillance equipment. Take a look at the video of the theft here:
The video shared on YouTube by Storylines featured surveillance footage from the school which caught the robber on camera. In the 28-second video clip, we can see the thief clad in a red-coloured sweatshirt taking a carton of milk from a bag. The area of the school seems to be a pantry or a kitchenette of some kind. She then starts to look around for other food items that she can steal.
There were a few boxes of cornflakes too lying around in the school pantry. According to the police, she managed to consume and take with her about $180 worth of food, or approximately Rs. 13,058. The exact breakdown of items taken in the theft is not clear.
