Operation Golden: Just a friendly F*ck You from your local police

In the pantheon of dumb ideas, this is golden...

People whose properties are an easy target could be woken in the middle of the night by [U.K.] police who are promising to try windows and doors in a bid to cut break-ins.

...Once inside, officers pick up any valuable items they see such as iPods or purses and leave them in a ’swag bag’ for the owner to find.

They also leave a letter explaining how easy it was to break in, with a recommendation to the homeowner to lock their doors and windows.

Love how police think they have the right to do this.
