Is she a contortionist? Woman in Taiwan climbs into crane machine and steals 2 plushies
1445  Light Myanmar 

Nowadays, you can find just about anything in crane machines — plushies, ice cream, crabs, cats, children, bikini babes, you get the drift. With such enticing prizes, it appears that some people would stop at nothing to get what they want, like this woman in Taipei. In the early hours of Dec 4, the 22-year-old squeezed through the chute of a claw machine, snagged two plushies and disappeared into the night with her loot.

She was apprehended and was brought back to the police station for questioning the very same evening with her stolen dolls in tow, reported Setn. CCTV footage showed the petite woman stealing into the empty-looking shop. After making sure the coast was clear, she ducked into the chute, wiggling around as she climbed into the machine.

Once she got in, the woman reached out and grabbed a plushie. However, that wasn't enough for her. She continued to push herself further into the machine until she was able to grab another plushie. The shopkeeper only realised what had transpired after noticing the missing toys and immediately made a police report. Based on the CCTV footage, the police were able to identify and arrest the girl.
