Sneaky seagull steals crisps

The sneaky seagull walks out of the shop with his crisps

A seagull has turned shoplifter by wandering into a shop and helping itself to crisps.

The bird walks into a newsagents in Aberdeen, Scotland, when the door is open and makes off with cheese Doritos.

The seagull, nicknamed Sam, has now become so popular that locals have started paying for his crisps.

Shop assistant Sriaram Nagarajan said: "Everyone is amazed by the seagull. For some reason he only takes that one particular kind of crisps."

The seagull takes the packet outside and then opens it and other birds join Sammy for a feast!

Mr Nagarajan said: "He's got it down to a fine art. He waits until there are no customers around and I'm standing behind the till, then he raids the place.

"He's becoming a bit of a celebrity. Seagulls are usually not that popular but Sam is a star because he's so funny."
