Californian man steals condoms from Walmart

A 20-year-old man has been arrested in Valejo, California, after he stole condoms because he thought it would be funny.

James McGee did not have any money on him but he decided to help himself to some of the prophylactics.

Sergeant Mike Collins said the male walked into a Walmart in American Canyon and took $102 (£64) worth of the precautionary device.

He has been arrested on suspicion of burglary and placed in Napa County jail.

McGee is not the only person who has thought it would be a good idea to illegally take condoms.

Last week, a machine dispensing the barrier option was taken from a disused bar in Bellingham, Washington.

The Quarterback Pub has been closed for over a year but an employee of the auction company working on the sale of its contents discovered the device had been taken from the men's toilets, while an ATM was also damaged.
