    95 Yr old woman solved mystery

    BERLIN (Reuters) - A 95-year-old German woman solved a series of mystery thefts in a retirement home when she set a trap, hid in a toilet, and caught the thief red-handed.

    "It was a real case of Miss Marple," said a police spokesman in the eastern town of Saalfeld Thursday. "It's good to know there are still courageous old ladies out there."
    The elderly sleuth left cash out in her room as bait and then withdrew to the toilet to lie in wait. A cleaner then entered and pocketed the money, unaware she was being watched.
    "Then the old lady hit the alarm button in the toilet and staff in the home nabbed the cleaner," the spokesman said.
    The cleaner, 36, later confessed to police she was responsible for other thefts from the home near the spa resort of Bad Lobenstein.

    You go Miss Marple!

    I do love justice! I have visions of her hiding in wait---while I smile.
