Thieves attempt to siphon gas from bus, suck raw sewage instead


Would-be thieves tried to steal gas from a stopped tourist bus by siphoning fuel from the tank – but got a mouthful of raw sewage when they tapped the septic tank instead.

Police say they found the discarded cap next to the bus, but none of the fuel was stolen, reports the Daily Mail.

“We can infer they beat a very hasty retreat, with a somewhat bitter taste in their mouth,” said Laverton Police Sen. Sgt Heath Soutar.

St. Soutar said they “have absolutely zero interest” in recovering the stolen goods.
