He could have been an escape artist or a contortionist. But he chose to be a thief.

Perhaps he was attracted by the possibility of stealing more than $53,000 worth of jewellery from a shop in Guangdong in China. It was the dead of night, and the shutters were down, but that didn’t prevent him from getting in through a crack at the bottom.

He may have got himself a fortune in stolen jewellery, but this thief could clearly have made a name for himself in a different profession.
