A pair of thieves who seized a van loaded with pricey designer goods on Wednesday took a two hour detour so they could drive the owner home for his Christmas Eve dinner, before fleeing with the loot.

Posing as police, the two men tricked the van driver into pulling over at a motorway intersection on the edge of Paris by chasing him in a car fitted with a flashing blue light, a siren and a "police" sign, local media reported on Friday.

Despite being armed with guns and wearing balaclavas, the thieves showed some seasonal goodwill when they asked their victim where he lived, explaining "we don't want you to have too far to walk", according to police sources.

They then drove the man around 300 kilometres to his home in Saint Soupplets in eastern France, so he could arrive in time for the traditional Christmas meal

Casshew, it is nice to know that not only is there "honor among thieves", but a code of justice in some. Hopefully they did not send him into his home naked, as I am sure that his clothing was also designer.
I am sure that he did not his Christmas meal.
