10-year-old arrested for stealing from a fruit machine

You know, there are some people out there who complain when blogs write crime stories that are tenuously linked to games, but this one is just too brilliant to keep to myself. A ten-year-old British boy was arrested on Friday for climbing inside a fruit machine at an arcade and releasing the prizes inside, including mobile phones, Nintendo games and cuddly toys with cash attached to them.

Wow, talk about an inside job ... shut up, that was an awesome gag.

The would-be ninja was caught and arrested on the spot at Mirage Arcade, Mablethorpe High Street. He was voluntarily interviewed by police with the supervision of a family member, where he admitted to the theft. After receiving a stern talking-to about his criminal ways, the boy was released. 

This news is absolutely brilliant and I defy you to find a funnier story today revolving around a small boy, a fruit machine and an arcade in Mablethorpe.
