Stealing toiletries and even bathrobes from hotels is one thing, but a British couple have taken pilfering to new heights -- they liked the shower in their hotel room so much they took it home with them.
The unusual theft came after the pair, a man in his 50s and a woman in her 20s, spent the night in a four-poster-bed room at the 17th-century Globe Hotel in Topsham, near Exeter, southwest England.
After they checked out of the room, staff found that the entire shower unit had been taken from the en suite bathroom.
Liz Hodges, the hotel's owner, said the man and woman -- whose identities are unknown as they paid cash -- had left her with a bill of about $700. "I just cannot believe someone would do this," she said.
