The brilliant moment a Dutch shop *congratulate* their ‘10,000th shoplifter’ (video)


Shoplifting might normally result in a fine, maybe arrest… but not for this woman.

A video posted from Holland shows the moment a store’s staff congratulate their 10,000th (alleged) shoplifter after she appeared to be ‘caught in the act.’

Excitable staff surround her within seconds of her supposed light-fingered ways being spotted on CCTV, presenting her with champagne, flowers and even a party hat.

But she doesn’t appear too keen to stick around when she’s presented with the free gifts. After her blurred face remains in shot for a short while, she makes a hasty exit.

The video has already racked up plenty of views on YouTube and it’s easy to see why.
