Grocery stolen…all of it

By Staff

A grocer in Saudi Arabia hurried to the police to tell them that his shop had been burgled. When he was asked how much has been stolen, he replied : "All of it.”

Wazir Al Rashidi had thought it was his lucky day when an unidentified man posing as a buyer of his shop made him an irresistible offer. But the buyer’s only condition was that he wanted to try the shop for two days to see how much it earns.

“Two days later, the happy Al Rashidi returned to his shop but he neither found the buyer nor its contents…..the shop had been cleaned up,” the Arabic language daily 'Kabar' said in a report from the central town of Madinah.
