Lavatory larceny

Lavatory larceny

A former NBA basketball player returned to his home in Dallas to find he had been burgled – and the thieves had gone to the trouble of stealing his toilet!

Charlie Villanueva, who played for the Dallas Mavericks and Detroit Pistons, shared a photo of the space in his bathroom where his toilet once stood.

It was accompanied by a series of tweets including: “Appliances all gone, like are you serious? This is mind blowing” and “I’m still tripping, who steals a toilet?”

Charlie’s mood was summed up in his final tweet: “I’m still in shock of the things they stole but the one that stand out the most is a toilet… Bro a toilet, can’t get my mind off that. A toilet… Wow.”
