Police seek UK 'Hot Tub Gang' burglars

By Washington Post Editors

A group of burglars in the UK appears to be targeting homes with hot tubs and leaving their wet underwear as a calling card, according to this report:

There have been at least four similar incidents at homes with hot tubs in and around Oswaldtwistle, in Lancashire.
It is understood the gang has stolen thousands of pounds worth of expensive goods and cash.
In one case, the raiders took a late-night dip in a hot tub before leaving their wet underwear on the side of the middle-aged couple's outdoor spa.
