A hungry thief who attempted an unconventional method of smuggling his haul out of a shop was nabbed by police.
Senior Sergeant Craig Dinnissen said police were called to Night 'n Day in Regent Rd, North Dunedin, at 2.26am today after a man attempted to steal a pie by putting it down his pants.
The man was located by police and the pie was recovered, but, Snr Sgt Dinnissen said, it was "unsellable''.
