We’ve witnessed thieves on surveillance video steal money and items in inventive ways. However, this one is definitely a first.

A brazen man in Australia used a fishing rod to steal a $700 Versace necklace off a mannequin from a Melbourne fashion boutique.

The man smashed a hole in the glass at the front of the store. Surveillance video then shows him use a rod to try and grab the necklace. He realizes it is too short, leaves, and then returns with a full-size fishing pole.

He tries again, stopping and starting to avoid suspicion. Eventually he lands his catch, a Medusa medallion. The shop owner says there were more expensive items available in the window but who knows, maybe this Australian fisherman is just really into Greek mythology … and bling.
