Thief takes the Mary Kay approach, nabs a DS in the process

I’m sure there are lots of ways to steal portable gaming systems (personally it seems to me the easiest thing to do would be to nab one from a kid when he isn’t looking), but recently a thief decided to try the door-to-door method, posing as a makeup salesman when approaching the home of a resident in Lotus Way, a neighborhood in Clacton, England.

After the resident allowed the thief into the house, he nabbed a Nintendo DS while the occupant was distracted. While it is implied from the source article that the thief was caught, there was no clarification as to what action was taken. Let’s hope the DS got returned. By the way, I was kidding above — I could never steal a DS from a kid. Well, maybe a total brat.
