Kangaroo 'embarks on lingerie looting spree' in Prague
Benji may look cute but he certainly showed a knack for pinching clothes when he hopped from yard to yard and took only the sexiest items off clotheslines.
The two year-old marsupial, who lives in Prague, was only caught after a woman looked out of her window and saw the creature making off with a pair of her favourite undies.
Police knew Benji was on the loose after his owner contacted them, but when they began to receive calls from residents reporting washing line thefts they didn't put two and two together.
A police spokesman explained: 'We had a call from Benji's owner saying his pet kangaroo had escaped. At the same time we started getting reports of a number of thefts from washing lines,
'We didn't think they could possibly be related until he was caught red-handed.'
Benji's relieved owner Petr Hlabovic, 35, said: 'I'm very relieved to have him back. I've got no idea what he thought he was up to - he certainly didn't pick up the habit from me.'
