In Britain, a criminal pretended to be a toy to escape from the policeBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/in-britain-a-criminal-pretended-to-be-a-toy-to-escape-from-the-police
Sometimes malefactors show incredible resourcefulness, trying to escape from justice. Fortunately, the guards of the order are also not blindly sewn and perfectly know many of the tricks of criminals. Although there are quite extraordinary cases that surprise even officers with a lot of experience. In the UK, car thief Joshua Dobson pretended to be a child's toy, but was accidentally exposed and sent to jail.
18-year-old Joshua Dobson, a resident of Rochdale, was engaged in car theft and was just wanted. He was particularly unlucky that day. The police found out where he lives, and guests came to the guy's house. Seeing that his home was surrounded and his escape routes were cut off, the criminal began to look for a place to hide in the house.
There were few options, and Joshua climbed through the ass into the Teddy bear growth doll and hid. Unfortunately for the criminal, the officers, after examining the house, held a meeting right next to the bear. Dobson restrained himself as best he could, but he couldn't hold his breath for long.
One of the policemen noticed that the toy bear was breathing and after a couple of minutes the hapless Joshua was pulled out of the bear's ass into the white light. With laughter and jokes, law enforcement officers handcuffed the detainee and took him to the police station. There Dobson quickly became a local landmark and everyone came to look at him every now and then.
As a result, the villain was overtaken by a well-deserved punishment. He was accused of stealing a car and escaping with unpaid gasoline from a gas station. Joshua Dobson received 9 months in prison without parole and went to serve another term. We are sure that his cellmates appreciated the story with the bear and the guy became a local star.
Later, one of the officers admitted in an interview that Joshua was one step away from success. If he had managed to breathe less noisily, he would not have been arrested. However, history has known more successful criminals. Australian serial killer Malcolm Naden hid in a zoo for seven years, stealing food from employees and animals.
