World Cup crime update…

Argentine football fan Ernesto Soldati stole a slice of Gouda from a supermarket in Pretoria. The master criminal saved a massive R12.99 in doing so – or he would have saved R12.99 if he had escaped capture. But alert security staff collared him and he ended up being hit with a R200 fine. That’s some expensive cheese.

Charged with theft at a special World Cup court, Soldati claimed he was in the shop with friends who left him behind. Quite why that’s an excuse to steal cheese, I don’t know.

    Could it be that the fickle finger of feta had singled him out?
