"Almancil: Burglar stuck in hole in supermarket

He became known as the 'stuck thief ', after having been stuck in the wall of a supermarket in Almancil, when he tried to get in through a narrow window, three months ago. The owner has not filed a complaint against him. Now, the burglar made a complaint against the trader, saying that he was attacked while he was stuck in the hole in the wall.

The 22 year-old, a Romanian national and suspect of belonging to a gang who targets establishments and homes, was eight hours stuck half inside and half outside the supermarket. When the GNR (Police) arrived he had his pants down to the knees.

The immigrant, heard in court and released, alleges that someone took off his pants and assaulted him before the arrival of the authorities. Although he did not see who was the alleged perpetrator of the assault - because he had his head inside the hole of the Supermarket Alisuper - the burglar accused the owner.

The merchant, Antonio Oliveira, thinks the "situation is hilarious" and assured CM to have a "clear conscience". Recalls that when he discovered the situation, "the boy had his trousers down and was without shoes." He called the GNR "immediately".

The complaint of the burglar was sent to the prosecutor, who will accept it or not."

Never a dull moment in the Algarve.
Some people lose a daughter, others lose their pants. What they have in common, besides losing something personal under the blue sky of Algarve? They blame and sue others for their actions.
But then again, this is a country where a Prime Minister riddled with cases where he's under suspicion gets re-elected...
