TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (22)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of Reuters (from Thursday, July 14; link good at time of posting):
A shoplifter sweltering in more than 10 pieces of stolen clothing while summer temperatures soared toward 86 degrees Fahrenheit was apprehended by security guards in the Belgian city of Antwerp.

Belgian daily Het Laatste Nieuws reported Thursday that the woman, aged 24, had been arrested after guards at a sports clothing shop in the busy commercial heart of the city noticed her bulky garb.

When detained, she was found to be wearing a jogging suit, a sweater, four polo shirts, three T-shirts, four sleeveless tops, a pair of shorts and trainers, the newspaper said.
