Teensy thief crawls in mail flap

VIENNA (Reuters) - A thief broke into the headquarters of Austria’s ruling political party by wriggling through a post flap in the front door, a party official said on Friday.

The burglar squeezed through the 35x35cm hole early on Thursday and stole laptops, mobile phones, notebooks and cash before crawling out, Catherina Straub, spokeswoman for the Social Democrats, said.

“It is such a tiny door for post and newspapers, he must have obviously been extremely small,” she said, adding that the culprit had not been caught.

She said it was unlikely the robbery was politically motivated and that the data stolen was not sensitive.
