Idiotic thieves who were trying to syphon petrol from a bus got a nasty surprise when they accidentally tapped the sewage tank.
The Mirror reports that the would-be bandits thought they’d managed to pry the cap off what they believed was the bus’s petrol tank.
However, police in Laverton, Western Australia say that when the thief or thieves tried to suck the petrol out of the tank, they got a mouthful of shit instead.
Hey all. Only in LA. We are looking into this one and following our nose for some leads. Hoping to crack the case. pic.twitter.com/jbaUBsI10ZAdvertisement

Laverton Police Sen. Sgt Heath Soutar told Yahoo:
We can infer they beat a very hasty retreat, with a somewhat bitter taste in their mouth.
Unsurprisingly, the police ‘have absolutely zero interest’ in recovering the stolen goods.
