A mother in central Germany came up with an unusual tactic to allegedly steal from a pharmacy on Monday. She distracted staff at a pharmacy in Darmstadt, Hesse, by lifting up her top and squirting her breast milk at them.
The mother entered the store at 4.25pm and asked to buy a breast pump, police reported.
But after handing over a €200-note to pay for her €20 purchase, she suddenly uncovered one breast and used her fingers to squirt milk from it at the pharmacist.
She then rummaged through the counter display and went to a second cash register.
Ignoring the pleas of staff and customers to cover herself up, she again rooted through the counter displays and unleashed a fresh spray of milk.
Apparently satisfied with her handiwork, she quickly left the pharmacy, leaving the breast pump behind.
The pharmacists only noticed that €100 was missing from their cash register some time later when counting the day’s takings.
Police believe the woman, who they described as having a “robust” figure, long dark hair tied into a ponytail and speaking an unknown language, stole the cash while customers and staff were distracted by her antics.
Officers described the woman’s antics as “almost unbelievable”.
