When I read some of the stories in my local papers and I think it can only happen in Dundee.

Just today, a guy stole £28k in jewellery off his own parents!

And this one is absolutely bananas - bloody foreigners! :p

Post local stories and crimes here that may be worth a look just to see how bonkers some people are.

"A man who stripped naked in a Dundee toy store and attempted to abduct a six-year-old child whilst battering his gran with a cricket bat has been sentenced to three years in prison."

I let out a belly laugh for that part of the write-up. I thought the attacker was beating his own gran up with the cricket bat.

It gets even better, I don't think its stated in the article but was on the local news on tv stating that to subdue him before the police arrived, the staff pinned him up against the wall with shopping trollies!! :lol:

I've never seen a journalist use the phrase "kicked off" before!

Football journalists aside, of course.

I didn't see the point in it in the first place but amazed they have closed it so soon.
