Lady JusticeHow would you feel if you walked into your hotel room and found a strange man sitting on your bed, watching TV while dunking your biscuits into your tea?

Well, according to a recent report, this is exactly what happened to a woman visiting a Scarborough, North Yorkshire (a county in Northern UK) hotel.

And supposedly this wasn’t our leaf thief’s first offense- three hotels (and countless teacups) in the area were infiltrated by the same guy!

For his crime, he was given the maximum sentence possible – one year in the slammer. A miserable fate, considering the fact that they probably don’t even have any good tea in there.

There are two lessons to be gleaned from this news. First, crime never pays. And second, people take their tea very seriously, folks, get your own!
