Thief steals urinal from city pub

Landlord Alan Dreja pictured at the site of a missing urinal
Police are on the hunt for a thief who stole a urinal from a pub in Hampshire.
The man is thought to have spent 40 minutes removing the white toilet bowl after ordering half a pint at the Royal Oak pub in Southampton.

He then stuffed the urinal in a rucksack and left the pub making sure he wiped his fingerprints off the door as he went.

But his exploits were caught on CCTV and after reviewing the tape landlord Alan Dreja handed it over to police.

"It's unbelievable," said Mr Dreja, 46, who has been landlord at the Royal Oak in Houndwell Place for two years.

'Professional job'

His wife Suzie Dreja added: "We were stunned as he did it at about 5pm.

"He had wandered in and ordered half a pint of Fosters, took a few sips and went into the toilet a few times.


The suspect was captured on CCTV with a bulging rucksack

"He did a very professional job. He turned off the stop cock and capped off the pipe.

"Our staff had thought we had taken it off for repair and it was not until the evening we noticed.

"After we realised, we looked at the CCTV and saw him go in with a flat rucksack and come out with it bulging. He actually wiped his fingerprints off the door as he left."

A spokesman for Hampshire police said: "It is a very unusual theft and we would like to speak to the man captured on the CCTV.

"It was clearly a very professional job," he added.

When I came out of the army I bought a house in Moss
Side Manchester (well Rusholme really..) and after a
two week break in Spain, I came home to find my house gutted
out with yes... the Toilet and the bath gone!

There must be money in WCs and other bathroom porcelain.
Beats me how but there you go!

:lol: The chances of this not being a squaddie are nil...somebody will be waking up with this in their bedspace and trying to remember where the fcuk they got it from...

Due to the technical nature of removing it from the wall without breaking it, he won't be in the infantry :wink:

over the years from the pubs i'v run, things that have been thieved -
pool cues, pool balls, chairs (and one table), pictures off the walls, bar towels, firewood from outside, my motorbike, lightbulbs and fittings ('its gone dark in the vault' to find the fittings screwed off the walls), music speakers (ones both inside and out nicked), a cigarette machine, numerous bandits, a old glazed and cut window (removed from outside one night), a condom machine,
and the pub cat.

after reading this i may now have to chain the shitters to the wall as well.

At Munsterlagger in about 82, two of the lads returned from a night of intercourse and intoxication in Hannover with a palm tree in their car, back windows down, leaves out of one window and a big concrete pot out of the other and no, they weren’t wedge heads, they were from the 12th Squadron of the rickshaws camels and taxis!

Beats me how but there you go!
I had the same house broken into 5 times between '88 and '94. The charmers took all the copper piping on one occasion.

Moss Side? I lived on Parkfield Ave, off Santiago St.

I came back home with all my holiday shite an a big sombrero on my head and let myself in and all the copper piping had been stripped, (and the bath and the bog and the cooker, everything had been took) same MO as what happened to you so it was probably the same shitbags. :x

No sorry, I mislead you. I had a house in a shittier, more drug ridden rat infested hole than you I'm afraid. Where the motorway and civilisation ends and crackheadville begins.........Grimsby! :cry: I believe my copper piping found it's way to Moss Side where there was a copper pipe shortage at that time. :roll: They never took my bath though, the cnuts don't know how to wash. If they do bathe it's in the North Sea where they lather up with the floating brown soap.... or lick each other clean :x

Never trust a plumber.
I'll get me coat...
But seriously,I don't know why they do it,there is no market for used bogs and baths unless they're antique and most get skipped because they're too bloody heavy for the average chav who lives in a dole funded luxury gaff with all mod cons anyway.
Down here whole roofs get nicked,but if these w@nkers took the time out to think they'd earn ten times the money legally.
But the toerags can't think beyond their next giro.
