Cars, dogs, pot plants... British police reveal what thieves steal from police stations

Police usually encourage victims of crime to report the incident, but it seems officers in Britain have kept remarkably quiet about thefts amounting to hundreds of thousands of pounds – from their own police stations.

Now, in response to a Freedom of Information request by the UK Press Association, police across the country were obliged to reveal everything that's gone missing over the past five years.

The items range from the valuable – patrol cars, bicycles, computers – to the bizarre, including milk, a pot plant, toilet paper and an unwritten parking ticket, according to the UKPA. Worryingly, uniforms, handcuffs, riot shields and a battering ram were also on the list. And you have to wonder how thieves made off with dogs, a wheelbarrow, a sword or a tea cart.
