TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (72)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of Reuters (from Friday, July 14; link good at time of posting):
Two Albanian men carrying stolen computers and flat-screen televisions worth $13,000 flagged down a Berlin taxi to transport their loot home but were later arrested after the cab driver called the police.

The taxi driver first helped the thieves load bulky boxes of stolen goods in front of a law office in the government quarter at 1 a.m. and then drove them to their apartment in a north Berlin district, a police spokeswoman said Thursday.

After collecting his fare and a generous tip, the taxi driver notified the police who later raided the apartment and found other stolen items from previous burglaries.
