    Thief trapped by 95-year-old woman

    I do so like stories of those who try to prey on the elderly being caught.

    Thief trapped by 95-year-old woman

    BERLIN: A 95-year-old German woman solved a series of mystery thefts in a retirement home when she set a trap, hid in a toilet, and caught the thief red-handed.

    "It was a real case of Miss Marple," said a police spokesman in the eastern town of Saalfeld on Thursday. "It's good to know there are still courageous old ladies out there." [This lady lived through WWII, the fall the the Eastern Bloc and the Hip Hop music. She's a trooper] (blue mid story editorial highlighting concept shamelessly stolen)

    The elderly sleuth left cash out in her room as bait and then withdrew to the toilet to lie in wait. A cleaner then entered and pocketed the money, unaware she was being watched.

    "Then the old lady hit the alarm button in the toilet and staff in the home nabbed the cleaner," the spokesman said.

    The cleaner, 36, later confessed to police she was responsible for other thefts from the home near the spa resort of Bad Lobenstein.

    Was kind of hoping for another one of those "granny beat someone down with her cane" stories.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.
