Seagull Shoplifter

Friday, 9 October 2009

A seagull in Scotland is a shoplifter!

This sneaky seagull, nicknamed Sam by staff and customers, has turned shoplifter by wandering into a store and helping himself to his favourite ‘Dorito’ crisps. Seagull Sam has become so popular locals have started paying for his crisps.

The fearless bird lies in wait every day and pounces at a corner shop in Aberdeen when the door opens. He sneaks in, grabs his spicy Doritos, then flies off with them in his beak and shares them with other birds. Sam has already stolen more than 20 bags of Doritos chips in the last few weeks.

Shop worker Sriaram Nagarajan, 22, said: "Everyone is amazed by the seagull. For some reason he only takes that one particular kind of crisps, nothing else will do for him. But he’s got it down to a fine art. He waits until there are no customers around and I’m standing behind the till, then he raids the place. Seagulls are usually not that popular but Sam is a star because he’s so funny."
