Thieves in Alberta have committed a crime that really stinks.
Randy Nemirsky and his son, Nick, told the CBC they spent the summer rebuilding an old outhouse on their farm near Edmonton. When they returned to the property this fall, nothing remained of the outdoor bathroom but a hole in the ground.
Nemirsky wasn't laughing. He reported the crime to the local RCMP detachment and told the media the outhouse cost him about $1000 to build. The new bathroom was probably much more appealing to the toilet thieves than its predecessor, which had been built in 1936. They also stole a picnic table.
