The meal he stole was reportedly some hot spaghetti.
An Australian shoplifter has been caught with his pants down after a saucy encounter with some hot spaghetti in a Perth supermarket.
A young man was caught attempting to steal “a hot meal of spaghetti” by putting it down his trousers. Shop owners have called the move “stupidity at its highest form”.
The torrid affair began as the man walked through the hot food aisle before settling on an aluminium foil container of pasta. In full view of a nearby customer, the man slid the pasta down his trouser leg.
The shoplifter started to limp as the container quickly became too hot. The heated liaison escalated when the man, reaching into his pants, realised the container had burst inside his trousers.
He then made a beeline for the exit, leaving a trail of spaghetti in his wake.
The man has reportedly been banned from the premises.
