A Woman Who Reported a Burglary...
She rang police thinking her house in Rheydt, near Moenchengladbach, Germany, had been ransacked by burglars.A long, long, long time ago in an enchanted farm house west of Janesville, three young brothers shared a room upstairs with a large family of Norway rats. The room was such a pig sty that some of the rats moved out into the chicken house. The eldest of the brothers, now known as Grandpa John, was somewhat of a philosopher. He stated that he didn't worry about losing stuff among all the chaos 'cause it would eventually circulate back up to the top. He was right as a fourth brother resurfaced a few months later.
A police spokesman said: "It looked like a classic break-in when we arrived, ornaments had been broken, draws emptied and furniture upended. It was chaos, but there was no sign of forced entry."
Sylvia Riegler, 16, turned up as police were trying to work out how burglars had entered the locked flat and told her mum she had not had time to clear up after finding her bathing gear.
