THERE was a time when a hotelier’s greatest fear was the sort of guest who might lob a television into the hotel pool.
But in India, a man has sent television replacement orders skyrocketing after allegedly stealing more than 120 sets from budget properties over the past four months.
The BBC reports Vasudev Nanaiah had been considered a “decent and well-behaved guest” until he was caught stealing a television from a southern Indian hotel in Oct.
He was out on bail when arrested for a second time and a serial pattern was revealed.
Bangalore police were contacted by a man Nanaiah had approached trying to sell the TVs, which were apparently concealed in suitcases.
